    Worthwhile Read

    Malignant Memory is a story about family and secrets. Overall, I liked the book and found it a fast, entertaining read. The protagonist of this story is the only daughter, Elizabeth, of a poor farming family. Henrietta Anderson (Andy) is left some money and requests Elizabeth comes to live with her. The story unfolds with life experiences around Elizabeth and Andy. Many topics are covered in this book: Physical abuse, Catholic religion, Native Americans, friendship, rape, unwanted pregnancy, loneliness and death. I found numerous thought-provoking messages in the book, for example: “…you are never friendless when you are a reader of books” and “…bad times are an opportunity to gain strength”. Elizabeth becomes a keeper of secrets and a great listener. However, she has her faults. Elizabeth shares her secret at the end and needs to forgive herself, which isn’t always easy to do. While the book is a fast read, I wish there was more depth to the characters. I wanted to get to know the characters more. But, I still enjoyed it.
