The Twelfth Child

The Twelfth Child
Bette Lee Crosby

Abigail has a rough life. A mother who dies early and a father who hates her are just the beginning. The story begins right before Abigail is born, but soon jumps to 70 years later when Abigail befriends her neighbor.

There were several pros and cons.
Very well written story.
Ending left you wanting more.
Engaging characters.
Author had a great way of making you feel what you were supposed to feel for each character.
 Book clubs will love this book.

Did NOT like the cover. Detracted from the book, I think.
Story had a slow start for me.
I disliked/hated a couple of things and people so badly that it put me off the story a bit.
Probably not my style.

All in all it's very well written and engaging story that probably just wasn't my thing. If I rated it on writing style I would give it a 4. But since the rating is for how I like the book I'm giving it a 3.

I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
