The ingredients of Tompkins novel resemble the usual murder, pregnant teen, etc. However, the author takes us deeper into the tension between the individuals and their inner and outer voices that help them see who they are in the world. When the reader understands the world inside of a character its easier to see their outward action as more than the act itself. What a compelling read!
