We were the Mulvaneys

by Mary_Hines (WorldCat user published 2011-05-17) Excellent Permalink

A wonderful book that makes you think of how one thing which can happen in a persons life  can change  their lives forver.  I loved the book and parts of it made me cry.  Joyce Carol Oates is a wonderful writer and touches your soul with this and her other  works.
