A Twisted Tale

  • Jul 3, 2010

The emotions you have while in this book runs from excitement to disgust.  You want Margaret to find out but when she does it is quite a secret.  If you are not offended by the nature of this book I would recommend it to anyone.  Has incest and abuse that some people might find offensive.  But it is very hard to put it down.  The setting of the story is almost romantic for where the story leads.  The writer leads you down a very interesting path care, concern, disgust, more concern and the emotions just go on and on.  The writer takes Margret on a mystery of Vida life that even the reader is surprised.

Truly enjoyable literary fiction without the stuffiness or pretentiousness so typical of this genre!       …
