Loved the book. Esther, the main character had been with me since about May 2012. I visited her in my mind numerous times when I couldn't read more of her story.
Now that I've finally finished the book, I just want to sit and mull it over. Think about the characters and their choices and my life and my choices. The end of the book has a reader's guide with questions to explore the book's deeper messages, history, politics. I'm really just sitting and soaking in the book.
While I will miss Esther, I know she will live on in my thoughts for years to come.
