I love Althea! 23 gennaio 2012
Di Dixie - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
I love Althea! She has a dream - a burning desire - to dance. Unfortunately, Althea is forced to wear this terrible sack-like garment that stops her from dancing. What can she do?

I was so caught up in Althea's story that I couldn't put The Sack down. Gwen Peterson Choate is a true story teller, who has left me wanting more. She and Althea have made me want to chase my dreams!

Excellent Story 21 gennaio 2012
Di Journey - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Althea has to dance, it's that simple. But it is also against everything she has been taught to believe. Will she break free of her sack-like environment as easily as she tossed aside her sack-like garment when she learned to dance? Or will she be forced to return home and live a life of private misery with an older man who would, essentially, own her? This story could have been ripped right out of last year's newspaper headlines about women and children living in an oppressive cult, forced to marry older men against their wills. The tension grabs you from the first page, and it doesn't let go until the end. It's a story that sticks with you long after you close the book. Great read!
Beautiful language! 25 giugno 2013
Di Barbara Youree - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
On the first page of The Sack I knew I was in for a treat of delicious language, filled with vivid images and metaphors like, "For a week, heat and humidity had squatted over South Texas like a hen with chicks..." Add to that the idea of girls and women of this strange culture who live with the lower half of their bodies enveloped in a sack and the reader feels their discomfort throughout the story. Yet, such figurative descriptions enhance and never detract from the swift moving plot, full of suspense and surprises. The required sack becomes a symbol of any obstacle that puts a person--especially a sensitive girl--at a disadvantage in finding and working toward her dream. Althea--like most of the other characters--is multidimensional, leaving the reader guessing as to what she will do next. I loved reading this page-turner.
The Sack held me spellbound. Couldn't put it down. 10 maggio 2013
Di amazondani - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I was captivated immediately and couldn't put it down. A real page turner, with some of the richest characters I have ever "known." Although I have finished reading it, the characters are still alive for me and inhabiting my thoughts and my heart. Ms Choate captured the essence of so many important facets of life--the confusion of being a teenager, feelings of isolation, gripping fear, being misunderstood, the frustration of not being able to freely follow a dream, of guilt, obligation, duty, loneliness, shame, betrayal, consternation, dealing with evil and the confusion it generates, living in constant fear, walking on eggshells, walking on air, gratitude for kindnesses, pure, unadulterated joy and the ability to soar.
Fabulous story 13 aprile 2013

this was a great story and I could read again and again--it is a lesson in being able to be ourselves inspite of what circumstances we find ourselves.
