Review
Beautifully written with characters that touch the heart, but it is NOT a feel-good, happily ever after story. Wretchedly realistic, it leads readers through a reality that most people would prefer never to understand while reminding us that, no matter how bad your life might be, there are always those who have it worse. Stunning, startling, and brilliant.  What she left behind
