This novel has been receiving rave reviews and it is no surprise why. Everything about it is fascinating, from the setting to the complex and ever-evolving characters, to the beauatiful prose and emotional atmosphere. A heart-wrencher, a tear-jerker, a emotional roller coaster, this book kept me enthralled from the first to the very last page. It is a coming of age tale about a young girl/woman who lives in extreme poverty and horribly harsh conditions in Kentucky during the late 1960's. Throughout it all, her dreams and perseverance prevail--to teach us all a lesson about overcoming adversity. I highly recommend this book, especially for book clubs! Utterly lovely!
