Liberty | 4 comments OMG please help! My friend went on a trip around 2011 and as a joke bought what she thought would be a terrible book at a Goodwill as a souvenir for me. Little did I know it would be one of the best reads I've ever had. I don't know if the book was particularly good but it was in a very sensitive part of my life which is probably why it affected me so much. These are all the details I remember without giving away spoilers

-orphan young lady working at her parents ranch
-parents were murdered
-raised in a small town by her uncles and grandparents
-at some point the murderer is released from prison to the small town and that's where the story really takes off
-she is in a weird uncommitted relationship with a redhead cowboy
-at some point she is in her pickup truck listening to Johnny Cash's rendition of 'Hurt' by the Nine Inch Nails
-the cover is a very "typical" cover of a house on plains with a storm at a distance
-oh! one of her uncles works at a bank
-and through the whole story her mother is depicted as someone who married too young and was very spoiled and high maintenance
