5.0 out of 5 stars
Wish You Well, March 24 2004
I'm a huge Baldacci fan and I wasn't sure what to expect this time out since it's such a departure from his other works. But I have to say...I LOVE THIS BOOK! My parents grew up in this era (1940's) in rural KY, with the hills and the "hollers" and the coal mines so these characters were very real to me. You'll fall in love with Lou, Oz, Louisa and Diamond. And you will care how it all works out. One reviewer said the end was "transparent", but who cares? It ended exactly the way it should. READ THIS BOOK!
