Three stars for how repetitive Joyce could get, especially when she was trying to make certain points; and how poorly sentences and paragraphs were sometimes structured.

My reactions to it are strong. That might be because I'm a woman and have been a single mother, but this book often made my blood boil against people using women in less advantaged positions to meet the demands for children acceptable to the adoption market.… (mer)
