did not like it
bookshelves: women-s-fiction
Read in July, 2008

Story of a family. The protagonist, Lucy Weiss,is a pediatrician who treats foster children and children at risk of placement. She herself was a foster child after her mother died when Lucy was a young child. The material in this novel is undigested. It reads more like linked short stories. The author and/or her editor did not do their jobs properly. Also contains some undigested hostility toward middle class families and their appendages - teachers, coaches, etc.
