I really enjoyed reading this book for a variety of reasons; 1, this story provided me a perspective of being an immigrant and wanting to come to United States for a different life that I did not previously have. 2, it was an easy read. I was able to put it down, make some holiday cookies & do some gift wrapping and then come right back to it – although there were times I did not want to put it down I just wanted to stay and read! 3. it was interesting, it held my attention and was insightful on human generosity and true caring. I greatly enjoyed reading it.
