Impactful: These letters tell of a horrible thing. They drag you through some of the worst of human sickness and lead you to strength and triumph. To the extent they are fictional (which isn’t obvious), they are extremely well dramatized. I thought I knew where the account was leading, but there’s a twist at the end I certainly didn’t see coming. I thought the portrayal of the mother was excellent – the way it was so effectively done with so few words.
