it was amazing
Read in December, 2008

I just closed the back cover and find myself breathing hard from the emotional weight of it. It is almost painful to read a story told from such a singular point of view. The mind wants to wander to how those whose lives she trampled in and out of must feel.

(And, when you read it, you'll wonder if I'm talking about the mother or the daughter. Really, I suppose, it's both.)

This book is written simply. In quick, conversational bursts. But carries with it some of the darkest secrets of the heart. And, the hardest lessons of empathy and forgiveness.
