"Where art often imitates life, this story weaves together the good and the bad sides of family, society, and love. It brings out some age-old issues concerning a good family having to cope with a bad child, the head not knowing where the heart lies in the matter of love, and the consequences of bad behavior.
The plot line flows, mixing suspense and romance…this is an excellent first effort for Missouri author Carter.
This is the kind of book one wouldn’t be ashamed to let her mama read, as it doesn’t indulge in the graphic sex-ploitation many authors try to utilize in place of good writing."
