This isn't normally "my type" of book but let me say how glad I am I continued to read it (The beginning bored me a bit) but HOLY SMOKES! I would have to put the book down and take a breath because I was so overwhelmed with the stories, I loved the switch between the past and the present. I loved how so many stories were being shared and OBVIOUSLY once I finished I googled all about that horrid woman. Knowing that this place was very real, knowing how disgusting of a person Georgia Tann was made the story that much more intriguing. I'm definitely going to do the same in future and venture away from "my type" of books because I could NOT put it down. Love love loved it!
