This is an acquired taste, a book so dark that it will make you think too much. I seem to be the only one who really loved it. I guess that is because I like Lee's style and the fact that she is telling not one story but two, the story on the surface and then the one in all that imagery. Lee makes plain that girls and women are faced with difficult issues when it comes to love, marriage, or children. Something primitive and unsaid in our culture but duly noted in fairy tales and folklore.
