Hyman Rubio brings to life a South in transition: the majestic estates and the humble shantytowns, the swaying pines and the insular bustle of small-town living. Against this backdrop, the narrative follows the twists and turns of Dalia's emotions as she struggles with her father's legacy, and ultimately her own."--BOOK JACKET.

Anguished but resourceful, Dalia strives to create a better life for herself and will stop at nothing to protect her family - but the sins of the father are never far behind." "Gwyn

While the dysfunction and tragedy the family in this book experiences over three generations was sometimes so depressing it was almost unbearable to keep reading, the characters are absorbing and the ending hopeful and uplifting after all that misery.

I had read Icy Sparks and decided to give this book a try. I really enjoyed it, although it was completely different than Icy. I didn't laugh out loud while reading this book, but it kept me wondering what would happen to the characters over time.
