Review From User :
Excellent flowing narrative which drew me in and made me continue wanting to read with nary a gaze at the remaining percentage as is my wont in difficult reads. I consider this a major feat when considering the subject matter.
A never ending cycle of violence. Here we walk a bit with Mae Ellen and her children as they trudge this circle. Longing to escape. Hoping to break the circle, unable to. Difficult for me, an outsider to understand what keeps one tied to such a destructive relationship. This book opened the door and let me peek in to see. A mixture of love, dreams, wishes, past ties, family history, young children, poverty, the tugs and pulls of co-dependency. Easy to preach from the outside, not so easy to live when you are inside.
