An Absence So Great, Portraits of the Heart Series #2
By: Jane Kirkpatrick
Random House, Inc / 2010 / Paperback
I am once again struggling to write this review. This book was a very slow read for me. I must say that books have to hold my attention from the first 20 pages. This one did not do this. I realize it was a story about the authors family so it is not for me to judge the content of this book. BUT for me as a Christian woman trying to stay on the path that God has for me, I do not like to read books with infidelity in them. I realize many people Christian and non Christian do not mind reading these, I do not like to.
So with that said, I can not recommend this book to my readers on that issue alone. But, I did enjoy reading about the history of photography and how it evolved for a young aspiring photographer in the early 1900's where women were still thought to be in the home. The pictures throughout the book were very intersting to look at. I guess that if you like these type of historical novels you would like this one.
This book was provided to me for review from WaterBrook Multnomah.
