Well written( first person) account of horrific experience, raises questions which have no answers "this side of Jordan" as they used to say; impressed with the fact she honored her parents no matter what, accepted their advice realizing the spirit in which it was intended. My only criticism would be meeting "available" men when she needed to meet them.
