This was a good read and a believable account of a young woman growing up in poverty.

A story told through the voice of an "bastard" girl growing up with the stigma that was once attached to that label. Her mother's extended family provide her with unconditional love but are not able to protect her from pain and abuse from outside sources. Touching story, quick read. Heart breaking and heart warming.
