In this riveting and unforgettable novel, Frances Mitchell is a young woman from a wealthy- but abusive- household who begins a romance with an older man that sweeps her away to a lower-class haven in East Cleveland. He will, however, begin to show signs that he’s far from a benevolent knight, while she finds the inner strength to take control of her tragic life. The story frankly examines issues including domestic battery, child abuse, alcoholism, and clinical depression. Frances is an awkward, self-hating girl yearning for peace and acceptance. She’s desperate for confidence and lasting happiness. The main question is whether she will achieve any of these things. Early on, it seems that she has. As she wises up, though, she realizes that her internal struggle is far from over, and there are new hurdles that she hopes to overcome.
