Finding the other
half of your heart and soul when you're still a child...too young to understand what will come and still at an age when you're far from learning you are not the
center of everyone's universe, can lead to a lot of heartache...and in
TARNISHED MEMORIES...boy howdy, does it ever!
Living in her childhood dreams and simplicity of the pecking order of things, Sally dreams of a fantasy love that will spin out of control because of her youthful determination to be egocentric. In a life of egocentricity there's no room for shades of black and white, so gray is lost in the mists of Sally's youthful self-centered-ness.
Tricia McGill has created a story with a heroine it's really hard to root for, or like. She's really a bit of a spoiled brat. Sally cannot see past how the events occurring in her world are causing others pain. All that matters is how SHE'S effected.
Tricia McGill delivers a credible, after much wrack and ruin, coming-of-age love story.
for this novella, and
KUDOS for Ms. McGill and her understanding of the human ID.
