Hat they should grieve for their daughter as though she were dead That they should try to move on But two years later when Ginny's best friend Marsha shows her a series of articles exposing Willowridge as a hell on earth its sualid hallways filled with neglected children she knows she can't leave her daughter there With Ginny's six year old son in tow Ginny and Marsha drive to the school to see Lucy for themselves What they find sets their cour Update Today August 6th 2019 happy publication day for this novelI have been a fan of T Greenwood s writing for uite some time I have also been disappointed once before but never to the degree that I was disappointed in this novelFor me the pacing was off completely As I was reading I felt like someone sat a half dozen young women at a table with several open bottles of wine and glasses all around then gave them an exercise to come up with ideas for a road trip and to just write whatever came into their heads Then several of these ideas were scooped out of a bin and tossed into this book willy nillyI usually bond with characters at least one or two if not all warts and all very uickly when I m reading For the first four fifths of this novel only the two youngest characters made me feel close to them at all Sadly it was mostly because I was so sorry for them the manner in which they were treated by supposedly responsible educated adults was appallingGiving treats to settle a child out of a tantrum Hello That is an ideal way to train a child to have tantrums in the first place reward them for doing so And cramming their little faces full of greasy food refined carbs and sugar Good heavens this was the early 1970 s when everyone already knew how those foods contribute to juvenile obesityGetting drunk and smoking cigarettes while pregnant Sure we ll throw that in too just to emphasize how ignorant and ridiculous two educated women can be one endangering herself and the unborn child the other playing the part of the enablerAm I judging too harshly I don t think so None of these incidents were resolved None of them were redeemed So even though the last 15% of the book was good it was definitely not great far too many events mistakes and poor judgment calls were left hangingThe premise of this novel held such promise and as mentioned the ending was good However that is simply not enough to call it even a fair to middling novel I felt tempted to award 3 Stars for the sake of nostalgia the times when this author wrote some incredible books and again because the premise held such potential However the execution right from the very start was so juvenile and unbelievable that I can t in all honesty bump it up past 2 Stars With gratitude to St Martin s Press and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review an ARC of this novel Its publication date is August 06 2019
