it was amazing
Read from August 09 to 13, 2012

This is the story of Clara Walpole, a beautiful young girl born to migrant farm workers during the depression. It is the story of how she is neglected and raised in poverty, learns to manipulate men, becomes one of the richest women in her town....and then proceeds to raise her bastard son in an entirely different but no less devastating kind of neglect. A very good tale that reflects how the mistakes of a parent can become a vicious cycle that repeats itself.
