I am on the fence in reviewing this book. The story was crying out to be told, digested, understood but the act of filicide still is such an unknown in our culture, so black it is not even whispered about. So in reading this dark tale is similar to watching the Titanic. You know the ship is going down so how invested do you want to be in the characters who will ultimately fail us as well as themselves. Was Adele heroic by taking her children with her? Could someone who was so unbalanced be considered heroic? The story has left me with more questions than answers. This may be the ultimate goal of the story... to get the discussion going and to learn from our clear cultural neglect on this as well as many women's issues.

Jessica Funny, I actually had to go look at the brief description to remember anything at all about it, even though I thought the title sounded familiar? Agree, very dark, and somehow compelling?
