Compelling drama that instantly captures the reader's attention. Meyer's artfully crafts the lives of two young sisters as they experience the ultimate tragedy related to domestic violence and betrayal. The author takes us through their life experiences after the tragedy and their individual coping and healing processes into adulthood. A wonderful testament to the power of love.

You won't put this down...
Meyers has gone far beyond the traditional take on domestic abuse, examining the relationship between abuser and abused. Rather, her debut novel examines what happens to the other survivors, the children. How do you grow up being know as "the murderer's daughters? How does that affect the next 30 years of your life? How do two sisters, Merry & Lulu, take care of each other while taking care of themselves? Once you hear that one of them open's the door and lets their father in, you are in for a roller coaster ride of emotions and insights that will grip you and keep you thinking, "what if" , "if only." and, "wow!" Her descriptions, beginning with the "no macaroni necklace - wearing mama" will make you both laugh and cry.
