- A leading character’s name is “Starla.”
- The editor was sloppy. It is missing some necessary commas.
- The prose is so overwrought that it makes most soap operas seem like documentaries.
- It paints an accurate picture of Charleston’s caste system.
- It is a fast read.
- Pat Conroy can do better than this.
A fine read for a Saturday afternoon, but get it from the library.
