This is a really terrific read. The main character identifies with the life, times and writings of Grace Metalious (author or Peyton Place) and she spins a great tale by linking the two women. It was this book that led me to other Delinsky novels.

It took me more than half the book to get into this one, but then it got really good. I suppose if you were familiar with Grace Metalious and "Peyton Place", it would much more compelling. I prefer some of the author's other books.
