The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Saints of Swallow Hill - Donna Everhart - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of The Saints of Swallow Hill:

Ray's tale of turpentine and tragedy.

My favorite Donna Everhart quote from the book:

"A life is a life, you know?"

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What would you do for someone you loved?

Have you ever pretended to be something you're not?

My review of the book:

A heartbreaking tale with a happy ending.

Engaging story.

The turpentine business sounds horrible.
