A NUANCED STUDY
IN MORAL AMBIGUITY . . .
NEW HAMPSHIRE’S Julie Bigg Veazey powerfully illuminates the awful and indelible harm wrought by cruelty and loss sustained in childhood. A surprising true story of exile and survival-at-any-cost, Jadine delivers a haunting account of the struggle and eventual psychological breakdown of a woman just as she reaches for redemption of a different kind.
“As in all the best crime stories, the characters in Veazey’s third, psychologically taut novel are as compelling as the plot twists. Take two orphaned children, enroll them in the school of cruel knocks, and wait a decade or so. The result: a story that is riveting, tragic, and inevitably human, a narrative that builds to a startling conclusion as it makes us question our preconceived notions of right and wrong.”
