Hannah Mcgarrah So profoundly moving, I couldn't even register how much emotion the novel evoked until thirty seconds after finishing the Afterword. I literally burst into tears. It is apparent that this is her first novel, the composition is a bit disjointed and her other works hold more effective literary devices but overall her portrayal of the characters was uninhibitedly sincere, honestly raw, and completely truthful to the multifaceted nature of the individual. I absolutely recommend reading this book, I even rate it to be better than Beloved.
