on May 31, 2014 :
This is a beautifully written, sensitive story about a young woman's journey from innocence to the darker side of family life. The author, Dianne Zanetti, has done a skillful job of writing about the prejudices in a small town and the consequences they can have on the innocent. Her insights into family life and relationships are both astute and subtle. This story is easy to read and engaging. I highly recommend it.
