My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I'm a born and raised Midwesterner, so I've heard many tales of tornadoes and the seemingly random destruction they wreak upon towns and cities alike. This masterful tale brilliantly portrays one such tornado, with it's senseless movements and terrible wrath upon a small town in the 1920's. The characters feel so real that it is easy for the reader to ride the rise and swell of emotions, and the devastating ending left me hopelessly crying (and I"m not the emotional sort generally).
This is a fantastic book and one I highly recommend - but keep a box of tissues handy!!
