Loyal to the Bone
BASTARD OUT OF CAROLINA by Dorothy Allison.
In this powerful book of suffering, strength, and grace, family love provides all of the above.
The most powerful aspect of Allison's book for me is her ability to remain loyal to truth, and Bone's ability to remain loyal to a family ripped through with flaws, and that family's ability, finally, to remain loyal to Bone and back her with all their strength, flaws and all.
