This was an interesting read. It was sometimes difficult to absorb, but I had to keep going. I needed to find out how she got to the beginning, in the end.
The interesting names for the family members were a Dickensian throwback, and the rationalizations of Lindsay as a child and of her family members because of their culture and upbringing are both fascinating and scary.
I couldn't put it down, and I was left rooting for her and her family despite all their quirks and flaws.
