Overview

A baby born in a dark dirty place wakes up: shivering, alone, abandon. It cries its first cries from a dirt hole in the pitch black. It does not know its mother's love will come back for it. . . . even from the grave.

The 1950's have a reputation for being happy days but for eight boys morning the death of their mother they are very dark days.

Mattie Thomas did not expect to die. She certainly did not expect her sister's betrayal; and nobody expected Mattie to "stay" in the house.

About 180 pages long, at times heartbreaking but never scary. The summary makes it seem like a horror story but it isn't and I don't think it was intended to be. It was boring in a few places but since its pretty short things get wrapped up quickly. Typos galore and a vicious and abiding confusion on the author's part to accurately use your and you're correctly drove me nuts but I do reccommend it to one and all.
