Catherine Monroe ☆ 1 REVIEWWay they did it just wasn t the well rounded conclusive organic ending I wanted Fabulous book This is not a preachy book but a book about
helping each other and rising above our situation Such an inspiration to appreciate what you can do foreach other and rising above our situation Such an inspiration to appreciate what you can do for I read this book in one morning and my daughter read it in the same afternoon Esta novela pretende ser una ficci n hist rica de la vida de Santa Margarita Descalza una Santa Medieval de la Iglesisa Cat lica Desafortunadamente el relato no le hace justicia a la Patrona de los abusados y de los matrimonios dif ciles Aunue en ciertos momentos la autora trata de transmitir el drama ue sufre una Margarita atrapada en la edad media con un esposo abusador y el peso de sus dudas y creencias es claro ue en la mayor parte del libro no lo hace de una manera habilidosa Este libro es tristemente una oportunidad perdida Tried to return this book to the person who I was sure thrust it into my hands and said You should read this and she told me That s not my book Now to figure out who did ive it to me Interesting read but obviously has no real historical accuracy It makes me wonder if this saint would approve of the author s real historical accuracy It makes me wonder if this saint would approve of the author s Aside from the sexual content and The Sorcerer's Apprentice graphic descriptions it s not a bad story This book was okayit wasood to read to pass the time at the doctor s offie but not one that I would highly recomend to a friend Novel of St Margaret.
