LoveReading Says

Kidnapped at 3 by a lonely alcoholic back-woods recluse, Cate, now 15, kills a man and her surrogate father, unable to cope, takes her back to her middle-class mother.  So begins this powerful original tale of reconciliation, acceptance and re-evaluation.  It falters a little in the middle, as first novels often do, but it is sensitive and thought provoking.  The hardback was published as The Reckoning and it reverts now to its original, self-published title as chosen by its 74-year old author.

Comparison: Alice Sebold, Alice Hoffman, Jane Yardley.
Similar this month: Clare Chambers, Ben Sherwood.
