Ann writes quite well (though I thought her daughter's poem so much better than her mother's work) - as she should after doing endless courses at various universities (Mainly the Brigham Young one) mostly in creative writing. She also taught the subject for a while.
The story is a sad one of the divorce of the parents and the responses of their 4 children who loved both parents. The father eventually went to live with an American Indian and both developed AIDS/HIV. After that divorce, for some mad reason, Ann married an alcoholic! Whatever possessed her I don't understand. Even the church 'bishops' to whom she was constantly running for advise and 'blessings' didn't seem to want her to go ahead without waiting longer to see if the man's treatment for his alcoholism had worked (it hadn't).
I don't understand how this woman didn't learn to stand on her own feet sooner -she constantly leans on friends and her church members for financial and other support.
I didn't enjoy the book, felt angry at this author for her inability to stop studying, take a proper job and behave in a more adult way. This is probably harsh as I know Americans often keep studying well into adulthood, but I thought that, with 4 children depending on her, it was time to behave in a more responsible way and not keep running to her 'bishops' for help. She seems incapable of thinking for herself.
I hope she is now having a happier life and that arrangements for the care of her disabled daughter have been taken so she can finally look after herslf.
I wouldn't read anything else by this author and am glad this was a freebie -I'd feel cheated otherwise.
It reads very much as he said, she said, he did, she did .. the whole book read like this and although there were some events in the book, they seemed to be skirted over and the last 1/3rd a rush to put in the last ten years. Sadly a disappointing read.
On the downside, her children did not come to life very well for me, and her rather mysterious second marriage is described in a much more murky manner than her first one. She is keeping some things back - fair enough - and we will never know what tales some of the other characters would have had to tell.
It's a testament to her skill that we are left with so much to chew on.
