This is a brilliant portrayal of 'the artist as a young woman' growing up in Los Angeles during the post war era.
Simonoff is able to speak through the voice of the infant, child and young woman in such a way that one can actually see the filtered light, smell the trees and hear the different voices speaking from the pages of her book.
Bit by bit, she has lost all she ever loved and wanted. Her fierce devotion of family and friends brings her to a culmination resulting in love and redemption.
