    Sara Barefield

    This book was a most excellent read. The main character's very real struggles changed a point of view I have had most of my life . Well worth the read.

    A Powerhouse Book

    Often tragic but always insightful, “Sara Barefield” tackles themes of racism, classism and abject poverty. This well-honed, character driven story offers an uncompromising look at poverty and the feelings of helplessness and shame that are sometimes a by-product of being on public assistance. Ms. Schwartz is a powerhouse writer. She has painstakingly crafted a beautiful, thoughtful tale with unimaginable depth… readers will rejoice in Sara’s amazing ability to overcome adversity, and ultimately triumph. The realistic portrayal of difficult choices combined with the many instances of hope and redemption make this a worthwhile tale. This book is a jewel, one that will stay with the reader long after the final page.
