CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:
First let me say, I found The House of The Soul an enjoyable and entertaining novel. Filled with discontent and the desire for more, the readers drawn into Ella’s life as Dawson detailed her journey. Drawing on life experiences, Dawson skillfully wove the many story-lines together to form a cohesive novel. Also, Dawson gives the reader an in-depth look into the Peace Corps and how it functioned in Africa.
