A bold and compassionate novel that deals with the nature of human evil with unflinching candor Donna, with her flamboyant hair and intricate tattoos, likes to hide behind an upfront attitude. When she hooks up with bad boy Shane, however, the joy she feels is clouded by his lawless past and her own anguish over a school friend''s death. But as grandmother Ruby shares memories of wartime romances and goes dancing in her silver shoes, she offers her family a powerful lesson in passion and survival. Hull is intimately evoked as a place haunted by its proud, seafaring history and almost eerie with menace in those areas blighted by drugs and crime. The immediacy and vigor of Daphne Glazer''s expression make for a compelling read.
