In this witty and lovingly told memoir, Kimmel takes readers back to a time when small-town America was caught in the amber of the innocent postwar period--people helped their neighbors, went to church on Sunday, and kept barnyard animals in their backyards.

My favorite book of all time. Love that a modern day American male author got into the mind of a Japanese female character in early 1900s.

I cried while reading.  This is one of the best books I've read.  Hosseini captures a view of Afghan life and the camaraderie between women in spite of what I call abuse and mistreatment of Afghan women.  Powerful, emotional, amazing.

When one kid recommends these to a sibling, pretty soon the entire family is waiting to read these.  Super creative, imaginative, intense, full of twists.
