Was going to give this a three because of the ending but after thinking about it the novel deserves a four because it is so well written and insightful. I was involved from the beginning and found myself agreeing with the characters on so many details. My heart was wrenched with what happened as I've been to places very similar. A very beautiful story, one that you'll remember for a long time. As mother's we try our very best to protect the children and give them what we never had...but we really can't protect them from choices in the world and what we think they need may be not what they want...it is extremely difficult being a parent. No child is alike...I will read more of this author...she knows how to portray the hearts of real people...thanks Laura!
