I requested this novel as all the ratings, I read were positive. I did not expect the foul language and sex scenes. I had trouble with it at the beginning and decided to put it aside and and read it later. I was happy I did this as I enjoyed the book. This was a new author for me and while I will read another book by her, I will be careful. The writing went smoothly and the characters developed. It cover family problems, there were heartbreaking and hilarious scenes. I found the ending satisfactory. I recommend this book
