The Lockhart Women

Brenda Lockhartโ€™s family has been living well beyond their means for too long when Brendaโ€™s husband leaves themโ€•for an older and less attractive woman than Brenda, no less. Brendaโ€™s never worked outside the home, and the familyโ€™s economic situation quickly declines. Oldest daughter Peggy is certain sheโ€™s heading off to a university, until her father offers her a job sorting mail while she attends community college instead. Younger daughter Allison, a high school senior, canโ€™t believe her luck that California golden boy Kevin has fallen in love with her. โ€จMeanwhile, the chatter about the O. J. Simpson murder investigations is always on in the background, a media frenzy that underscores domestic violence against women and race and class divisions in Southern California. Brenda, increasingly obsessed with the case, is convinced O. J. is innocent and has been framed by the LAPD. Both daughters are more interested in their own livesโ€•that is, until Peggy starts noticing bruises Allison canโ€™t explain. For a while, it feels to everyone as if the family is falling apart; but in the end, they all come together again in unexpected ways.

A coming of age story, with some family drama, some humor, flawed characters with O.J.โ€™s trial as backdrop and the result is an addictive read. I loved to hate the Women in this story and the great writing. An amazing debut.
