A memoir of childhood and motherhood in Taos.
"With unsparing candor Pat Pollard bares her soul in this account of her jagged progress from the alienation she felt as an adopted child to unwanted motherhood and the constrictions of step-motherhood. Seasoned by time and hard-won self-realization, she puts the painful chaos of love and relationships in a woman's life into human perspective with her well-told story."--Cherie Burns, author of Searching for Beauty- The Life of Millicent Rogers
