Sad story, but entertaining and holds the interest.

In reading other reviews on this book, I see most readers agreed with me. This is not an easy book to read, because it is full of heart break and 'making do'. What troubled parents and what very sweet and talented children. I won't go into a long outline of what the book is about as others have already done that here. I will say, read this book and you will cry, chuckle, shiver and mourn with these children. Its a hard life they all had and probably a very hard one for the parents as well.
