    Superb, deep, historically brilliant

    Her ability to tell a story is remarkable - she develops the characters and plot so well throughout the book, it seems so lifelike.

    Okay

    I've read her last two books which were amazing. This one was okay, but, to be honest, I expected more from this story. More twist and turns maybe? I don't know, it just didn't really do it for me unfortunately.

    Enjoyable coming of age tale

    Two adolescent sisters left mostly to bring up themselves by their loving but ineffective mother seek refuge in a small Southern mill town with their uncle after their mother leaves them to find herself for several weeks. Set in 1970 against a backdrop of the growing realisation of the futility of the involvement of the Vietnam War and forced integration in the local high school, the sisters face bullying and some harsh realities. The girls support each other and discover the joys and frustrations of an extended famiky after living for so many years with just the three of them. Told with affection and some humour, this story doesn't pull punches however in dealing with some issues.
