First thoughts:

1. I can’t believe I picked up an Oprah recommended book.
2. Dysfunction
3. Incest? Didn’t see that coming.
4. Thanks to my good friend, Teryl, for bringing it to my attention.

This is a very fast paced story, and I was able to tear through it in a few hours. I felt for Harley, and all of his sisters. I can’t imagine being 17, mom killing pop, and being left to care for your three younger sisters.

I’m tired, and I suppose this not really a ‘review’ per se—just my feelings.

I didn’t understand Callie’s attraction to Harley. What was her motivation for the affair with the guy 15 yrs younger? He didn’t come off as particularly attractive (he rarely showered), he was dirt poor, he didn’t express himself very well. Hmm… well all I can assume is that that she felt sorry for him and wanted to make him feel good. Huh.

I disliked the ending. I don’t think we are meant too, after all not all stories have happy endings.
