I enjoyed this book immensely. The story was very unusual, but engaging. It was heart-warming to see the growth in the main character, Jessie, as she was able to recapture a less self-destructive way of living and thinking. I loved the characters in the book. They were interesting people. The story dealt with real issues that we all face--death of a parent, forgiveness, growing up and growing old, facing our deepest fears, and being able to give and accept love.

This was a wonderful book. I just loved it. Author is husband of the equally great author Beverly Lewis, and was stunned that both of them should be equally great as authors. A wonderful story. Tormented by memories of her mother's death, her father's retreat into alcoholism, and her hatred of her grandmother, whom she blames for both, Jessica Lehman is determined to put the past behind her. Instead, she finds herself drawn back to her grandmother's home to face her suspicions about what really happened there. Andy, a childhood friend, becomes her ally in the search for truth that engages and changes them both. Narrator Aimee Lilly portrays Jessica's conflict in somber tones and handles gender changes with skill. When events escalate to the point of Jessica's sanity being questioned, Lilly portrays her terror with palpable realism. A surprising ending reveals complex characters and motives.

This was an easy reading book. Interesting and thought provoking.

Unfortunately, this book was poorly bound and has one loose page.
