  "Wonderful story" by carolk59 (see profile) 01/19/09

The main characters are a 6 year old girl abandoned by her mother and an elderly black woman who takes her in. The events in the story are mostly about the life of Addy, the old woman. The author weaves in current events with the child seamlessly. It's a wonderful story, sad at times but inspiring as well. Many characters come in and out of Addy's life, how they impact her makes for interesting discussion. The ending is both happy and sad.

 
  "Love comes late to a woman who's life has been anything but easy" by kfoulks (see profile) 08/31/09

I loved that Addy Shadd and Sharla Cody found one another. Sharla was a 'giveaway' child.. her mother simply was done dealing with her 6 year old and wanted to run away with her boyfriend, and quite literally went door to door to find someone to take her. What comes of it is absolutely beautiful. Addy loved that girl like she was her own, and fought for her, taught her and nurtured her better than Sharla could have ever hoped for. I loved that Addys life was so rich.... and made more rich when Sharla came into her life.
