This is the story of a family that shows the world a little and hides a lot more -- even from each other. It's a story of compassion and abuse, lies and secrets, of people who once could finish each other's sentences and now don't know who they themselves are, let alone who other family members have become. It's about narrow minds and big dreams, and about how sometimes grace and sin can be the exact same thing, and how that can tear apart hearts and lives. This a difficult tale, exquisitely told. -- Jackie Blem, Tattered Cover Bookstore, Denver, CO
