Read on the heels of several other depressing books, this was not particularly what I was interested in reading at the time, so it might deserve more than the 2.5 stars I wanted to give it. I found the writing a little too matter-of-fact about events without any sense that Abby was gaining any insight from her reflections. I felt that certainly as an adult I knew very little about her but did not particularly have a sense that I would like her or that she would be a good wife or mother. As a child I wavered between understanding her need to do what she could to escape and blaming her for abandoning her brother in the process. In the end, I found little that held me in this book and I felt disconnected from all the characters.
