This is worth reading just for the vivid portrayal of the young girl, but it is marred by an improbable faith healing and a completely gratuitous sudden death, made more offensive because it causes unnecessary pain to Garnet. A better ending would've been to fast-forward to about 1970 (the novel takes place in 1957) and have Garnet calling her child in from play: 'May...May Rose Shepherd, time for dinner.' Also, I find the present tense irritating when used throughout a novel. Stories are best told in the past tense.
