Things happen in the story that lead the main character Tara to become estranged from her family. The book is written several years after she parts with them. Her parting is completely justified…but I do question her placement of the blame. I don’t want to say more than that or I’ll give too much away. The book is REALLY Really good. I do recommend it.
