Ms. Graham uses language beautifully to set moods and evoke emotion. During one description of a dust storm I looked out the window expecting to see darkness. But her true strength is in describing characters. Her characters are flawed, sometimes painfully and unattractively so, Yet we are taken on journeys into their pasts to see how pain and sorrow damages and then she pulls us alongside as people grow and change. An overarching theme is love requires sacrifice. Yet, Sugar learns that the sacrifices of love-hers and of others-lead to a fuller life.
