Hard to follow

I just didn't get it. I listened to until the end. The story/movie usually come together at the end. I can't begin to explain what happened excluding the mother Freda was crazy {lost her mind} and left her kids to be raised by her mother. After this cant tell you. I don't recommend this book.

Characters that Stay with Yo

Ms Whetstone writes compelling stories with heroines that haunt you long after the story ends. I know Nina and Nan will be with me for a considerable amount of time as I contemplate the dynamics of their tortured relationship and their individual struggles with their personal demons. I can't say that I identified with a particular character in the book, but I definitely felt their anguish over the choices they made in life. I believe that the antagonism I felt toward Nan through the majority of the story was pierced.and diluted with empathy and hope when Ms Whetstone skillfully changed the perspective of the narrative toward the end of the story

Beyond an absorbing story and multidimensional characters, I am often struck by the understated elegance of Ms Whetstone's literary style. On more than one occasion I stopped to marvel at the beauty of her language structure.
