Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Northern Montana in the 1960s is "man's country." While the building of underground missile silos has changed the economic and physical features of the area, it has done nothing to enhance customs or the status of women. This is the story of Dorrie Vane, who escapes to Chicago but returns two years later an unwed mother. Family relationships and former friendships no longer work for her, but then neither do new relationships. Dorrie struggles with the reality of her mother's mental illness, her father's radical political activities, and her own changed status, often relying on fantasy to maintain her mental well-being. McNamer captures in beautiful prose the harsh realities of Montana life, making her debut as a novelist with this touching analysis of the modern Western woman.

Format: Hardcover
Only children don't want to reveal--even to other only children--what it's like to be an "only." McNamer sprawls the secrets across the page, threads the feelings through the tale, whispers the solitary questions and unspeakable answers.
The interior lives of McNamer's characters echo against an exterior heavy with foreshadowing. This reader often found herself gasping, pulling the still-open book against her breast, knowing and afraid to venture into the inevitable plot events. Yet, except for a few unconnected thoughts and moments, this is a novel that involves the reader throughout and lingers in memory even years after the covers are finally closed

Format: Paperback
What a wonderful read. The author gave a clear idea of what it felt like to grow up as a young woman in the 60s. It was an adventure, full of the heart-break of real events. The book pointed out that although life does not often have happy endings, some moments do. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and even read it twice, something I rarely do.
