Review From User :
changed my mind this is a 5 STAR BOOK
I am overwhelmed by the emotions and was hungover for a day. The whole journey throughout this book was magical. It was nostalgic. It was beautiful.
This book tells the story of three children whose father is taken away by the police and they have to live with their mother in poverty nearside a railway station.
If poverty is living in a wonderful countryside, meeting with lively people, roaming around free and exploring new areas then I will happily accept it and of course the ending is great.
Some wonderful lessons from this book :
"Also she had the power of silent sympathy. That sounds rather dull, I know, but it's not so dull as it sounds. It just means that a person is able to know that you are unhappy, and to love you extra on that account, without bothering you by telling you all the time how sorry she is for you."
"Don't you think it's rather nice to think that we're in a book that God's writing If I were writing the book, I might make mistakes. But God knows how to make the story end just right-in the way that's best for us."
"everything has an end, and you get to it if you only keep all on."
