This was a good book, not so much short stories as chapters, which shift from one thread to the other and occasionally jump into the perspective of a character besides the two main characters, Carla and Del The story follows the lives of these two women, who eventually become neighbors and friends Their childhoods were unpleasant, and in trying to escape the abuse and dysfunction of their parents households, Carla and Del recreate the abuse and dysfunctionality they are used to Woven into this s [...]

Rope Bone is the first chronologically and in my opinion the best of Ginnah Howard s trilogy of the lives of two families in an upstate New York community It has plenty of interesting back story and excitement, such as teenage girls running away, and a woman in a romance with a prisoner she doesn t know anything about This is a COZY book you want to curl up with I enjoyed it from the first page to the last.
