The Homecoming of Samuel Lake

The Homecoming of Samuel Lake - Jenny Wingfield I wouldn't be surprised if later on this book becomes a classic. It has all the makings to become a classic. In fact the comparisons between Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird and Swan from this book seemed spot on to me.Reading this book made me feel as though I was a part of the Moses family. These characters seemed so real that they jumped out of the pages and into my life. These characters are complex and flawed but most have redeeming qualities that shine through in the face of adversity.Some of the events in this book brought such tears to my eyes that I never thought I would get from a book. Reading this book was a journey filled with joy, anger, and sorrow; and it was a journey I was glad to have taken.[I received an advance reading copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, that in no way affects the content of my review.]
