Just after her mother's funeral, five-year-old Holly is dropped off by her father at her grandfather's South Carolina dairy farm. It will be 30 years before Holly sees her father again - plenty of time to develop a fondness for drinking and video poker. And also plenty of time to contemplate why her father abandoned her.

    " Well I just finished this book, and contrary to everyone else's reviews, I didn't like it. At first, I found the characters and the short stories touching. But about halfway through, the changing perspectives just got old and confusing. I think it ended up detracting from the original bond you felt towards the characters, which led to my disinterest in the book. Eventually, I just really didn't care anymore. When the ending finally came, when everything and all the stories and viewpoints finally came together, it just fell short. All of this excitement and build up just fizzled. There was no magical happy ending, and there was also no tragic ending. It was just an abrupt (2 page) summary of what actually happened between Holly and her father, which was neither exciting nor memorable. The book was a quick read, and not terrible, but just overall boring and uneventful. "

    " I liked the structure, the imperfect characters (and they are so imperfect that it took half of the book for them to grow on me) the clean writing--not an extraneous word. Allison understands families and a basic principle: we are destined to screw up just like our parents. "

    " A good family drama. "
