Another wonderful read from Joshilyn Jackson. Ro Grandee is living a life that she's very familiar with, since she's living the life of her mother. Why, though, is she still with her abusive husband -- unlike her mother who left when she was only eight? And when did the feisty Rose Mae Lolley, her previous self, start hiding beneath bruises and long-sleeved shirts without fighting back, simply content to remain Ro Grandee? Ro isn't sure how it happened, but she realizes that she needs to find Rose Mae somewhere within herself again and become something greater than she's ever been: herself. In the fight to find herself, she will learn more about her past that will launch her into her future. Will that lead to a strong, self-reliant woman, or one who just goes back to what she's always known?

A perfect read for anyone who isn't sure if she can find her own strength without relying on others to provide it -- or for anyone who isn't even sure she needs to.
