This is a gritty story of a group of people careening towards rock-bottom. It's one of those books that's hard to read when things get desperate, but infused with enough hope and human spirit that you have to keep turning to the pages to see how the characters will survive.
I highly recommend this for fans of Liane Moriarty and Bryn Greenwood.
Carrie Sloan is a sensitive high school senior who hopes that years of hard work and self-denial will finally pay off in a full ride to college--and away from her dysfunctional family. She and her mother Janice seemed to have been at war since Carrie's birth, and things only get worse between them as her parents' troubled marriage finally implodes.
Once upon a time, Janice allowed an idealized view of marriage and motherhood to derail her dream of country music stardom. Three decades and seven kids later, she has one last chance to grab for her rightful destiny and she's not letting anyone get in her way. Especially not her husband.
Harry Sloan is a hard working man whose best intentions crumble under the strain of his alcohol and gambling addictions. Still, he's always managed to scrape along. Only now his weakness has led to an act of shocking violence that cannot be undone. Faced with the loss of all he's clung to, Harry sees just one way out.
This emotionally charged family drama is Teri Case's first novel, and it kept me enthralled from page one. She's created complex characters with painful secrets and mixed motives. Their determination to get what they think they need--no matter the cost--leads them into some dark places, hurling the plot forward through unexpected twists, turns and revelations.
A powerful debut. I hope to see more from this author.
The author, incredibly, was able to draw me in to Janice's story so she became more than a failure as a mother....she became the representation of a women who has made hard choices, who has set her own dreams aside, who has little control over her own life. I read TIGER DRIVE while women were marching around the world and I just felt sorrow for Janice. She, like so many women, do not feel empowered and carries the burden of a lifetime of hardship.
This book is important. This story must be told. A story of people. Real people who struggle and make mistakes and who want more for themselves and their children. This story gave me an insight into the lives of so many of my students who go through the same issues.
This story made me cry and gave me hope. Thank you Teri Case for sharing. Because everyone wants to matter.
It‘s a love story of sorts and there is a good amount of suspense and mystery. But most importantly- especially in today‘s world- this novel reminds us that we all have our reasons for making the choices we do in life and one should never judge other people, especially the ones we love, until we know their whole story.
