Good Read

I was a bit uncertain where this book would lead, as Thea's mysterious back story was shared like spoonfuls at a time. Ultimately, things came to a tidy end, with the knowledge of what happened to the characters long after the story ended. It was an interesting glimpse into the lives of monied, teenaged girls during the Depression.

wonderful novel

This is such a wonderful novel! Even more so knowing that this is the author's first novel. There is much good to come from her. Her writing is so beautiful and rich. Here she weaves the story of what Thea and her family did, with her time at Yonahlossee which is her punishment. The depth of this 15 year old girl living during the depression is immense. You don't have to be into horses to read this novel. It's a sensual, beautiful coming of age novel. Must read. 5 stars.

Coming-of-Age

A compelling story of a young girl who wants too much, too badly and the devastation on her family.
