Marydale Rae has a strong sense of self. She knows who she is, what she wants, how to get it, and most importantly don't care what others think of her. She lives by her own rules and make her life suit her. She has a past that she was constantly reminded of. No matter that facts that are presented she will continue to pay for the past as longs as she lives in Tristee County Oregon.

Small town life has a way of keeping you down, especially when it is mostly owned and ran by a power family. Being an outsider coming in making waves and causing attention to be brought your way is not the way to stick around for long. This sleepy small town feel was just a pretense under it all was an ugliness, content, illusions that was making for a read that started to drag. The bright spot was Marydale and Kristen.

There were good characters in both Marydale and Kristen. I could feel the struggle that was going on within them both to make something from the ton of crap coming their way. I was looking for more of a relief to be interspersed here and there. These woman showed that there can be some good that comes even if it wasn't until the very end.

The was an emotional read that will take you through the wringer. The writing was good. The concept was there. The reality maybe was just more than I could handle when I went into the read looking for something different. Emotions will be stirred and passions ignited, but maybe for different reasons than you think.
