Amanda McCamey is a handful. Born in the Mississippi River Delta on a plantation, her relatives fail to notice that she is taking rather too much interest in her cousin, Guy, and before long, she is pregnant at the age of fourteen. Sent away, she gives birth to a daughter who she is forced to give up for adoption. Amanda then conforms for a while, marrying a wealthy man in New Orleans, but once in her forties, she rebels again. Going back to school, she becomes a translator and poet and divorces her wealthy husband. Moving to Arkansas, she endeavours to concentrate on her translation work, but soon becomes involved with a much younger man. Will she ever find what she is . Read the complete review
