I adored this book. Many folks say it's similar to The Power of One, but having not read that book, I was blown away by this moving story. Wonderful characters. A tale of survival despite the odds. Highly recommended.

I loved this book, brought back some memories for me too. Bryce Courtney has a knack of showing a well rounded view of any situation.
