Greenwood review Keeping Lucy 109 Hat they should grieve for their daughter as though she were dead That they should try to move on But two years later when Ginny's best friend Marsha shows her a series of articles exposing Willowridge as a hell on earth its sualid hallways filled with neglected children she knows she can't leave her daughter there With Ginny's six year old son in tow Ginny and Marsha drive to the school to see Lucy for themselves What they find sets their cour. When Ginny Richardson s daughter Lucy is born with down syndrome her husband has her taken to Willowridge a school for the feeble minded Ginny is heartbroken but her husband convinces her that Lucy being in Willowridge is in everyone s best interest including Lucy s Ginny was expected to grieve and move on But then Ginny s friend Marsha find a newspaper article detailing neglected children despicable living conditions and poor treatment at Willowridge Ginny knows she must do something anything to protect her daughter Against her husband her father in law s wishes Ginny decides to actI really enjoyed this book which felt as if it were set in the 1950 s and not the early 1970 s to me Ginny is very passive in the beginning of the book She does not drive she pretty much does as her husband and her father in law want She really does not appear to have a voice But kudos to her for finding her voice when she knew her daughter was in a horrible situation The reader is right there with Ginny and Marsha as the two women go on a journey with Ginny s six year old son and Lucy in tow I really liked the character of Marsha but did take issue with the choices she made in this book Entertaining and captivating This book pulled at the heartstrings in many ways Ginny as I previously mentioned did not seem to have a voice at the beginning of this book By the end of the book she grew a backbone and was almost a totally different woman She still wasn t tough as nails but she found some inner strength and stood up for herself and fought for what she thought was right Her confidence blossomed as she advocated for her daughter Lucy alone and without love at Willowridge met her mother and older brother and was able to bond with themI found this book to be a fast read and enjoyed how the story is told mainly in the present time but also in the past showing how Ginny and Ab met and fell in love It was nice to see Ab in a different light He is a man who loves his wife and son It was a different time then Was he acting on information he was given was he embarrassed by Lucy or was he bowing to his father s pressure Decide for yourselfAn enjoyable read which sucked me in and had me turning the pages There were some situations which seemed a little implausible but I was able to overlook them as I was enjoying the story and the epic carroad trip of the women and children The abuse and neglect of the children is deplorable and the reader will root for Lucy and Ginny Thank you to St Martins Press and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review All the thoughts and opinions are my own
