just amazing.
This has easily became one of my most favorite books. The stories that are being told are just so raw and true. They made me think so much after reading the stories from Alejandro, Isabelle, Domingo, Tay Fredrico, Roman, and Aling Anna. It was very engaging and I just love this book so much I am going to have to re-read it over and over. Calling this book amazing is simply an understatement.

I loved it
This book is awesome and anyone who doesn't like it, just don't know what they're reading and how true and realistic this is.

I read the book 3 years ago and I can still say that this is my favorite book ever...

I can still remember the first time I read the novel...I laughed, I cried...
The time and setting was described beautifully. Some of the events and images brought me back to the stories that were told by both my grandfathers. Besides getting a glimpse of how it was during their time, I also got inspired by the characters and their stories. I can't wait for Holthe's next novel!
