The rural community of Roosevelt, Utah, was an idyllic place in the1950s. Everyone knew their neighbors and no one locked their doors at night. By all appearances, the Blaines are the ideal Roosevelt family. Father was the elementary school principal and well-liked by everyone in town. Mother cared for the six children, shepherding them to church each Sunday. But appearances can be misleading. In reality, the Blaine family was a disaster.
In a time when children are seen and not heard, young Dianne Blaine wrestles with her mother's despair and her father's rage. To make sense of this place where nothing is as it seems, Dianne must confront the secrets her family keeps in the shadows and the hypocrisy that hides in plain sight.
For Cryin' Out Loud! is a breathtakingly honest, courageous, and moving tale of struggle and self-discovery.
