Berg gives us another fine novel. As is often the case with her work, the heroine is a perfectly ordinary person whose life has an unusual twist. In this story, our heroine is a girl living in a small Southern town in the early sixties, her father a distant memory. Racial tension? Yes. Growing pains? Yes. But the twist to the story is the mother - paralyzed from the neck down by polio that struck during pregnancy. How they cope with, around and despite of the household's focal disability makes for an intriguing and powerful story of growth and hope.
