    I guess I was hoping for something a little complete It was interesting but still a lot of stuff was left to mystery, as I guess it really is I might have liked to have seen a bit about the Donnellys themselves It still seems to me that the definitive book on this story is yet to be written.

    The Black Donnellys was written by Nate Hendley It was published on May 4, 2004 by Amazing Stories I really enjoyed this book because it was about a family who move to Canada for a better life and didn t have the life they expected they would have in Canada I think Nate Hendley really focused on getting the right information about the Black Donnellys, making it a interesting book to read Nate Hendley did a really good job researching the true history of the Black Donnellys When Nate Hendley couldn t find out what exactly happened to the Black Donnelly during certain parts of their life the author would explain that there were many different opinions on what happened and included the rumour that most people believed Nonfiction writers will uses rumors when part of the story has no true fact because everyone has a different opinions on what happened While reading the book it didn t feel like I was reading a biography I felt like I was reading a fiction story I like this because I was able to picture the story in my mind making it come to life, instead of feeling like I was reading a bunch of facts on the family s life Some of the Donnelly children were not a huge part of the story, for example Jenny Jenny ...
