it was amazing

Wow - this book blew me away. It starts out with a woman killing her 88 year old mother. There are many reasons why and we go back through her memories of her family to get to the end. I believe this book will give a new definition to dysfunctional family. How this act comes to pass and the effects that it has on the family are beautifully and touchingly described. This one gave me a lump in my throat. And made me very very sad. If you're depressed right now don't start his one - wait until you feel better!
