So much happened in this book and how short a read this one was for me indeed . I felt for Miriam the main character in this book . I found her to be a very strong person and of good character morally that is . Boy did this family hit home with all the families having to deal with domestic issues these days . It was disturbing to me in some parts and some of those parts I could have done without . But all in all it was a good book and I hope some of my dear readers will pick up a copy and give it a try .
