In light of what is happening in the world today, it may be a bit early in our war against a virus to be reading this novel. Did Wright have a terrible insight or were his publishers just waiting for the right time for this book? Uncanny!

This story opens with the rape and beating of an Hispanic girl out on the oil patch range of Odessa, Texas. The young man who did it gets off because, well, he is a man and it is the 1970s. The first woman who helps the victim is inundated with threatening calls about her testimony against this man. The story touches upon the lives of the 4 different women and  their daughters that live on a particular street in Odessa and their struggle living in that man's world without a voice.  Very good!
