This is a pretty difficult subject about two very different women in prison facing up to their own kind of hell for what they have done. Despite this the author handled it well and covered a lot of sensitive topics, especially life in a women's open prison.
Bringing in the finches as a help to survive what they had been through was an interesting and rewarding touch by the author to a book that could have been a difficult subject for some readers and made the book more memorable to me.
Thanks to The Reading Room and the publisher for a copy of this book for review.
