Editorial Reviews


Every now and then I would come across a book that leaves an indeliblemark and I am unable to stop thinking about it for weeks. Those Children AreOurs by David Burnett is one such book.This is a beautifully written story of heartbreak, loss, pain,forgiveness and healing.  Choosingto read this title was indeed one of the best decisionsI have made as it relates to my choice of reading matter. I have no regretswhatsoever.  This was my firsttime reading this author's work and it definitely will not be my last.
I was fascinated by the blurb and the cover and I was eager to seehow the tale would develop. The author touched on the sensitive issues of mentalillness and physical abuse. He demonstrated the devastating impact that mentalillness can have on the patient and their family if not diagnosed and properlytreated.  If we fail to seethe signs, then the impact can be devastating. The author demonstrated thiswhen Jennie's husband failed to recognize that her change in behaviour was dueto some underlying mental issues.
I loved the way the characters were portrayed.They were some you like, but there were those who you disliked immenselyand the more you encounter them the more you find yourself despising them. Jennie's father was a prime example.
The story is extremely well written. Fromthe moment I began reading I knew that I would have a hard time putting thisone down. The pacing was well balanced,there was never a dull moment. There was a particular event in thebook that had me on pins and needles. It was a very nerve wracking moment, butin the end, it worked out the way it should for all the parties involved.
I enjoyed this story and I would highly recommend that you give ita try.
Totally Addicted to Reading
I never saw how this book would end. Maybe it is weird that I amstarting by talking about the ending but that is the part of the book thatsticks with me the most. I was shocked, in fear, and in awe of how Jennie,Emma, and Thomas managed to work together to save their daughters. You have to read the rest of the book to get tothe end, but it is so worth it.
 Jennie...I despised her. Howcould a mother leave her two young daughters and her amazing husband like that?How could she possibly think that they should let her back into their lives?Then I met the rest of her family Most of them seemed kinda normal. Likemy sister and brother, like my aunts and uncles and I thought okay, maybe shedoes deserve a second chance.    I am still torn, does she? Didshe do all she could? Is twelve years too long to repair the wounds and makebonds with her children? There are so many questions that go with reading Those Children are Ours. David Burnett does anamazing job of not playing favorites and of telling the truth of the wholestory.
This story was heart wrenching. It showed thedifference a good mother can make to a child and how an amazing father can makean upside down world seem to be okay.    It also shows how ittakes a community to raise children. While these girls did not have a mother,they did have teachers, friends, and other family members to step in andshoulder the weight when it was needed.
 I feel like I was focused onJennie, the mother, more than the rest of the characters due to the fact that Iam a mother myself. I could not put Those Children are Ours down. Every word, page, paragraph was wonderful. Thisis not an easy read or subject and it was handled with the grace and care that it deserved. I definitely recommend checking it out.
