characters," is true. The characters in "A Hunger in the Heart" are drawn with compassion and hope,
and their epiphanies are satisfying. Still, at the end of the book, I sense something is not quite right
with Coleman, and wonder how the injuries of his childhood might affect his future years as
an adult. Sequel?? I would love one!
I am not very familiar with this genre, but I do know fantastic characterization and a strong story when I see them. My only complaint is that I would have liked to have spent a little more time with some of the characters, a few of whom could inspire separate stories of their own. "A Hunger in the Heart" is a powerful, emotional read. Highly recommended.
How that scenario is handled and what happens when the man responsible for changing the course of all their lives shows up . . . well, that's another story. The time and place, the imagery, the language, and the people reminded this reader of her days in a small Southern town in North Carolina. Exceptionally well done, Kaye Park Hinkley.
