HATTIE : A BEAUTIFUL DEBUT – A BEAUTIFUL VOICE What strikes me about HATTIE is the consistency of the strong, heartfelt voice of the narrator. Told in first person, intimacy links the page to the reader. We actually hear HATTIE speaking to us. At times, she is so close to us, snuggled inside our skin, that we feel her breath. Author, Anna Bozena Bowen, does a superb job making us care about HATTIE’S life. It is not an easy one! But we stay with her, turning each page, hoping she will triumph… I like Bowen’s style – succinct. This takes courage. If you’re looking for a book that will stay with you, then HATTIE is the one you should read next.”
