Thea Atkinson is a writer of character driven fiction; call it what you will: she prefers to describe her work as something akin to the left of mainstream. Her characters often find themselves in the darker edges of their own spirits but ultimately manage to find the light they seek.
She has been an editor, a freelancer, and a teacher, but fiction is her passion. She now blogs and writes and twitters. Not necessarily in that order.

Starting this book, I was not sure if it would be my kind of read, but I could not help but be drawn in by this author's excellent story telling. At times I found the story frustrating, gut-wrenching, sad, and joyful. I lived with the characters while reading about their often painful story.
I found the part that is seen through the eyes of the four year old, Maggie, very interesting. I also enjoyed the contrast between what she thought and felt and what the adults thought she did.
Although this is certainly not a light read, if you want a story that feels true, deep and real, this is for you.
