This book was recommended to me and although it isn't the usual type of book I would read I thought I would give it a go.
Unfortunately I didn't find it that interesting. Maybe the hype I had heard upped my expectations too much, but I just found the story a little dull. It seemed to jump around from Jeanette being a child to an adult very quickly, without much explanation.
I can obviously appreciate how religious her mother was, but I would have liked the book to conveyed how restricting this was to Jeanette in just a little bit more detail.
Obviously this book was popular enough to be made into a BBC television drama, but it just wasn't for me.
