Wow, this was an awesome book! It was deep with emotional passion of a life always in turmoil. It continiously left me with a feeling of dark despair; of struggle to be yourself without disappointing anyone else that thought differently of you; a constant search for for freedom yet boundaries of safety. There is something in this book that will connect with everyone who reads it. Eloquently written; vividly descriptive; definitely thought provoking. I thought it to be an excellent read!
