The first name of Suzzy Roche apparently rhymes with "fuzzy," but there is nothing blurred or foggy about this novel about the rapprochement of a mother and daughter who both suffered violence at hands of the father. The mother remained entrenched in her upstate New York town; the daughter became the lead singer of an underground rock group before fleeing to the relative safety of a hippie church in San Francisco. The return of the daughter to her hometown enables both women to grapple with their shared troubled past in significant ways and lends readers a deeper sense of how wounds that once kept families apart can bring them closer together. (P.S. Author Roche is the youngest of the three sisters who form the group The Roches.)
