Who was your favorite character?

Sarah was my favorite and I liked her bravery and feisty spirit.

Strong Heart. Sarah was a little bratty to me. I also liked William's daughter (I can't remember her name right now). She was intelligent and very interesting to me. I suppose I just love strong female characters.

Sarah is my favourite character. The strength and bravery portrayed are elements every woman should relate with.
Most times, I fall flat on my face. But never do I remain on the floor; I rise again.

I liked Sarah. She is no nonsense but begins to mature as a result of her experiences. I also loved the wisdom of William.
Interested in books that help one's spirit move beyond the ordinary.

I like Weeps a Lot More because I do (weep a lot). Lol.

Strong Heart/Sarah is my favorite in the story. I wish I were half as tough.

I love strong female characters as well!

The name of William's daughter was Myra.

My favorite character was Tom, even though he never knew she existed he embraced the Grandpa role. He definitely struggled to show her but you could definitely feel that he cared.

@Amagine I think you are talking about Myra, I really liked her too. She pretty much held everyone together through it all.

Sergei was my favorite. Even though he didn't agree with his father, he still fulfilled his father's wishes after he had passed.

I really liked Myra. She was a strong character, but not overconfident; brave, but with the ability to reason and think things through.

I liked him too. I thought Myra was too rude to him.

I liked Sarah the best. Though I found some of the dialogue in the beginning a bit stiff between her and the adults, I felt she grew more and was more relatable.

Sarah was not my favorite, but I agree with you on her growth throughout the book.
