Read the reviews, eagerly started it & plodded along throughout this overly long, overly dull recounting of the author's mother's turbulent past at the hands of a predatory sexual deviant . Yes it is a sad story, but it takes so long in the telling that my eyes were glazing over & I had to force myself to finish it. more could have been done to move the book along, making it far more impactual, engrossing & to the point. I understand the author was on a "journey of discovery" but she lost her way in trying to make pages for a book. I would NOT recommend this book at all & I read & enjoy most every genre.
