    4.5 stars This women s fiction offers a glimpse into how someone could get caught in the system and have to fight to get out with lots of help This story was told in the 1990s just before the president and Congress shut the door with welfare reform The small window of opportunity that Sara had had me in tears not just for her but for so many that she met along the way.The love story of Tully and she was compelling and destroyed by his draft in the Vietnam war The outcome of that pulled me 4.5 stars This women s fiction offers a glimpse into how someone could get caught in the system and have to fight to get out with lots of help This story was told in the 1990s just before the president and Congress shut the door with welfare reform The small window of opportunity that Sara had had me in tears not just for her but for so many that she met along the way.The love story of Tully and she was compelling and destroyed by his draft in the Vietnam war The outcome of that pulled me into the story initially Heartbreak and hope as he died and she found herself pregnant.The people she meets along the way, both helpful and not, all added to the feel of the authenticity of the storyline Sara had an easier way of life and chose to turn her back on it for good reason Her determination and discovery that, in my words, false pride was something she could not afford to have.The rejection she got from some in her old town and her mother had become something she expected and tried to avoid from people in her new town She ends up in some of the poorest neighborhoods and finds that there are good and bad people everywhere.Bev and Lolita were wonderful and helped out at times that were desperate There were the social workers, doctors, and classmates that kept the unexpected coming There were times that I cried for Sara and times I cried for other characters It felt so real It starts and ends with Sara finding love.The ending gave me hope to carry on no matter what This is the first book I have read by this author I hope her other books are as good

    I loved Sara s story I loved that it was a story of strength and independence So much of the story was so frustrating Frustrating to know that there are flaws in the system I was grateful it went the way that it did when she met Carl It could have gone another way and I may have completely lost interest
