The Pink House Review

"MacEnulty writes with sympathy, wisdom and-an unexpected blessing-humour." -The Guardian "MacEnulty's strong writing ability brings it above the emotion to form a full bodied story that leaves a lasting impression." -Radmore, Front Street Reviews Jen Johanssen is a former porn actor trying to fit into the world of academia. Her sister, Lolly Johanssen, is a cancer survivor. Nicole Parks is in prison for loving the wrong guy. And Sonya Yakowski, also in prison, is a member of a family of traveling criminals, desperately missing her young son. The lives of these four women converge in a Florida prison, where Jen and Lolly have joined forces to put on a grant-funded drama production. Despite their remarkably divergent histories, these women come together in unexpected ways, each beginning to confront and forgive her own past.
