Such a pretty girl
Meridith's story is hard to read, but is an important one to tell. Can't say I enjoyed the book, but for the most part it was well written. I'd be hard pressed to find value of any kind in a story about incest if the character's emotional betrayal and pain didn't give the reader pause and cause them to reflect, so in that respect the book makes the grade. The ending of this story lacked a bit of finesse (maybe there were just too many coincidences) and the pseudo "happy ending" was more incredible than happy, but I was rooting for Meridith and was not altogether bummed that her horrendous story ended on a more upbeat note.
