Sinossi

This compelling novel follows Mims Meissen, a German Catholic girl raised in Depression-era rural Texas, as she comes to terms with her church, her father’s religious fanaticism, as well as her mother’s battle with mounting scruples and pills.

When the parish priest asks the Meissen family to take in a rebellious boy from the state reformatory, her father agrees, convinced that God has finally found a way to give him a son. But when the boy rapes Mims, her father rushes her to the priest to confess, convinced that his daughter initiated the despicable act.

In years following, Mims buries the horrid memory of the rape and her father’s ultimate betrayal. When she becomes a wife and mother, her shame and guilt ignite with a latent anger to create in her gruesome thoughts of inflicting violence on her loved ones. One night, she stands beside her baby’s crib, her rosary in one hand, and in the other, a ribbon with which she would strangle her baby. Will she succumb to the power of her anger, or will the God of her father and her church save her?

5.0 su 5 stelle A very good book! 9 novembre 2012
Di Granny - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This book is a very good read. Through fictional characters Rita Chapman appears to draw on her strict upbringing in a German, Catholic family over 60 years ago. Her father is portrayed as a selfish person while her mother's deep strength is overshadowed by her ambitious husband who strives to break into the culture and activies of a small town.

Mims and Desty are two lively young girls who are the beneficiaries and the victims of this upbringing.

The story is beautifully written. I particularly enjoyed the prologue the author used to introduce and pinpoint each chapter. Once you get into the story it is hard to put it down and you wish for more and more.

This book gives you an insight into a dysfunctional family and how Mims and Desty are able to come to an understanding of their parents and make peace with the past, shed the bad memories and cherish the good lessons instilled in them.

Right from the start you are drawn in by a little mystery. Then, you get to know the lovable characters and are hooked. A wonderful story woven with threads of German Catholic heritage.
