I just need to get my hands on this book. I been given a sample in exchange for an honest review and I have to say on all honesty that I got angry as soon as I finished the sample because I wanted to read it all! In one sitting if possible! The author managed to draw me into the story from the first eight pages. I wanted to know everything about everyone! Why is the boy so attached to his dad? Are they ok as a family? The happiness of playing chess with your grandfather as your mother prepares dinner and you all waiting for the head of the family to come back home after a long day working the fields. From the author description I was able to feel it and hear it and even smell it! It was like I was there!
