User Review  - Nannylou - Goodreads

Depressing awful story with no good ending for anyone. Each page contained a rape, murder, incest, mutilation, whipping, loss of family, or psychological abuse. Would not recommend to anyone. Read full review

I enjoyed the writing & characters but it was just so depressing that I finally gave up reading (at not quite halfway through). It was just a series of struggles & tragedies that I thought for sure ... Read full review

Well thank god that's finished! If the book had been any longer, I'd have ended up on Laudenum myself!! I'm sure it must be my current state of mind but I found it so depressing with no positives in the story at all. If it hadn't have been a book group read, I wouldn't have finished it!
