Laurie Jean Cannady
Etruscan Press
384 pages

“Never maudlin or self-pitying, always searingly honest, Cannady balances raw evocations of suffering with tender love for her beleaguered family. The result is the transcendent story of a child who will not remain a victim.”

-Laurie Alberts,  author of Fault Line and Between Revolutions
