This book reads like a memoir, heavy on the narrative, light on dialog. Madison suffers through a childhood of neglect and poor examples of adulthood, which lead her into a lifestyle that she vowed would never be hers. We watch her struggle and suffer silently with the choices and decisions she makes, but also her desire to lead a different, better life.
She enters several relationships that are destructive to herself esteem, but give her the financial stability she needs after enduring a childhood of poverty. It is not a sunshine and roses story. She makes an effort to lead a traditional life that ultimately backfires in her face. Throughout the book you are rooting for her to find peace and stability on her own.
The writing in this book is well-organized and stirring. There are some editing issues, but nothing that pulls you out of the story. All in all it was a fascinating insight into the world, mindset and choices of a woman who is struggling to find herself and her indepence. I enjoyed it from start to finish.
