Book Review * Everything My Mother Taught Me by Alice Hoffman

In this haunting short story of loyalty and betrayal, a young woman in early 1900s Massachusetts discovers that in navigating her treacherous coming-of-age, she must find her voice first. For fatefully observant Adeline, growing up carries an ominous warning from her adulterous mother: don’t say a word. Adeline vows to never speak again. But that’s…

Even though she had been betrayed too many times, Danae kept moving. She never forgot those who left her hanging over a cliff, but it was in her nature to keep going, more than she could ever imagine.
