But that's the type of story this is. I was hooked and couldn't wait to see what happened next. I'll try not to give away the story, but it starts out with a young woman leaving her abusive live-in love of several years, and going back home. Along the way to finding herself again, she meets many new people, and learns many shocking secrets about her family and herself, though perhaps the most shocking one of all she never learns. Definitely a page-turner in every sense of the word. I've already told my mother and the family friend who gave me this that they must read it. Can't wait to see what else Ms. Patty Rice has for me to read. You'll love it!!! :)
The book started with the heroin leaving her abusive boyfriend of seven years and returning to her home and her older sister. She was never really close to her family and so returning home was a desparate last resort. Her mother who she hates and vowed never to see again comes to visit when she hears that Camille (the heroin) is there. Now here is where I feel some progress could have been made. Although I won't give away the plot, it just seems that maybe Ms. Rice could have concentrated more on the relationship between Camille and her mother.
I don't know, the book just didn't leave me satisfied although while I was reading, I did enjoy it. Try it for yourself!!
