I can't tell you how many hours of sleep I lost, staying up late to read "just one more chapter". This fictional narrative spans years and countries, but throughout it all you can't help but love the main character, Minke. She is flawed, but loving, and even while I'm cringing at some of her decisions, I find myself applauding her for her rationale. This is somewhat of an intricate coming-of-age novel, a bit of an adventure novel, a beautifully done historical piece, and a great, moving summer read. I highly recommend it for general fiction and historical fiction fans.

This was the first book that I read from my Grab & Go bag. I loved it! The writing was great, the characters were developed, and nothing came as predictable. This would be a great book for a book club. (March 29, 2013)

Wonderful read! The characters spring to life, the story is full of interest and adventure.

Held captive from the first page to the end. Love greed and betrayal are the forces that guide one through the 2 years of The Young Wife's story. An excellent book.
