It's so hard to read through tears

This was an exceptional book, proven by the fact that I was moved to tears through much of it.
It tells the story of a young girl torn from her family because she contracts leprosy. While a novel, it's a testament to those for whom this was real. It begins in the late 1800's, and spans decades of the harsh treatment of those who suffered.
*****from me!
