Prodigy

Abigail Easton. CreateSpace, $14.99 paper (242p) ISBN 978-1-4961-0536-3
Singer and guitarist Grace Taylor, a musical prodigy, is a young woman in trouble. First she is raped by Nicholas, her boyfriend, and then abandoned by her family when she reveals that she is pregnant and wants to keep the baby. Complications at childbirth lead to the downward spiral of drug abuse and a reunion with Nicholas—but also to an escape to the Australian rainforest and a search for peace. Easton puts her heroine through the ringer, but at times the story devolves into cliché. As Grace blunders from one mistake to the next, readers will feel that her problems have less to do with unresolved issues and coping mechanisms and more to do with the author creating elaborate trials and tribulations for her characters. Additionally, many of the supporting characters are too broadly drawn, and the book's resolution is unlikely to satisfy readers.
