A powerful enlightening read.
I liked this book It was a giveaway and not usually what I read but I thought the summary was interesting.I found the topic interesting and the book felt very well documented the topic of women s rights is clearly something the author has carefully researched and I liked that because I don t get to read about it that much in novels The story is well developed and the characters are really what makes it a great book I found several chapters especially very moving the beginning, when Sera is found [...]
I can t praise this book enough Author Greg Hogben s work in My Daughter s Army reflects his research on the true scenarios for millions of women around the world and brings them close to home.If you want to get people to start talking about feminist issues, have them read this book In Mr Hogben s own words, Awareness is the first step In order for there to be change, people need to be educated This book can do that.
Perhaps because I m a bleeding heart, liberal, feminist, LGBT equality, tree hugging, pro choice, etc etc etcis book was candy to me I gobbled it up There were a few times I wanted to tell the dad to chill out, or some times it felt a little very special episode, I still enjoyed the story the author wove I loved Sera s care takers, not expecting those tears And I appreciated the brother But now that I know the ending, I want to know what happens next
KUFlawless writing with wonderful characters This book is both very spiritual and scarily plausible I loved it.
Very sad Womens issues.
Wow Wow Wow.
My Daughter s Army I was given a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review Let me start by saying this book was beautifully written This is a spiritual, mystical story firmly grounded in reality I felt at any given moment in the story that the events could really be happening today Even though the book is about a woman who is possibly the daughter of God and sister of Jesus, the author s use of historical events as well as the gradual introduction of social media into [...]

I don t often give a full five star rating on anything But what Greg Hogben has created here is strong, and well wrought, and intensely necessary He explores religion, and meaning, and purpose through a thoughtful and nuanced lens His story is heavy handed and at times a bit over the top but in a GOOD way in all the right ways Because the reader will have no doubt that he s writing from the heart Each word is powerful, and poignant and carefully chosen And he s not afraid to address the flaws of [...]
My Daughter s Army is a well written and compelling story about family, love, strength and what we can do if we stand together Not only does the novel have a very important message, but it is also a very good read with a gripping story, excellent language and very good dialogue The novel catches you from the very first page and you just have to keep reading The message of empowerment of women all over the world and how it can be achieved is a very important one, not least because of how the nove [...]
