4.0 out of 5 stars She kissed him with fear and hope and uncertainty..., 15 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Northline (Paperback)
Northline is a sad novel about sad people. Allison gets drunk too often and can't always make it to her job. Her boyfriend Jimmy is, a lot of the time, not particularly nice to her. Once he locked her in the trunk of his car when she blacked out through drink. She can't even succeed when she tries to cut her wrists. Then she finds out she's pregnant. She knows what will happen if Jimmy finds out, and she fears his hold over her. She leaves town, gets a bus to Reno and puts in motion her plan.

Allison is a mess, until she meets Dan. They exchange histories. Neither of them seem to have had much luck. Half the time Allison doesn't know how to trust a man, any man, and when you know what's happened to her, you know why. But Dan is damaged too, he has trouble with the sight in one eye. He was set upon one night by a group of drunken college kids. He had to have a lot of surgery to make him even half all right.

Can Dan and Allison make it? These people haven't had a lot of luck so far. You have to care, even if you wonder why you should. It's that sort of book.

And you wonder what makes America so great when it produces so many stories like these.
