I stayed up late to finish this one. It starts out really slow and is a bit of yawn-fest while the set up the characters. Then the introduce Ginny and I was ready to just throw the book across the room. I didn't remember or read the back and I was kind of thinking "Trite!"... but then... then... it got good. Really good. Oh, it's a tough subject, on many fronts. But it's so well written and reasonably well handled. Beautiful book, moving text, and an ending that I liked (yes, *I* liked an ending - that never happens). If you see this one, pick it up. It's a rough going read, but it's so well done and so moving.
