Overview

In 1940's rural Pennsylvania, Kit McCafferty was a victim of sexual abuse. What happened to her was never discussed, let alone reported. Instead, Kit took the abuse until one fateful day when she had the courage to make it stop. Kit eventually married her high school sweetheart, Paul, and was ready to put it all behind her. Or, so she thought. For the pain inflicted on her wounded heart poisoned her relationship with Paul, and rendered her incapable of being the mother she wanted to be. Diagnosed with terminal cancer, Kit realizes how much suffering she's inflicted on her family. She also knows that all of this misery will wind its way down generation after generation unless she can find a way to heal her family. But, she can't heal her family until she figures out how to heal herself. And, that's where the real work comes in: Kit's healing process demands that she explore the concept of forgiveness to its logical but unfathomable conclusion.

After reading about 50 pages or so, I couldn't put it down. The storyline and characters are interesting, and the book is well written. You will not be disappointed at all if you read this book.

This book was well written, very graphic with a serious look at abuse and mental illness. The ending had a surprising spin on it  I give it 5 stars

This was a well written, compelling story.

I thought it was a very compelling story-disturbing but good that these stories are brought to the attention of readers.Sadly so many of these situations happen and are hidden and that cannot continue.Its worth the time to read
