    Mudgirl is a child abandoned by her mother in the silty flats of the Black Snake River. Cast aside, Mudgirl survives by an accident of fate - or destiny. After her rescue, the well-meaning couple who adopt Mudgirl quarantine her poisonous history behind the barrier of their middle-class values, seemingly sealing it off forever. But the bulwark of the present proves surprisingly vulnerable to the agents of the past.

    Story

    I found it sad and difficult to listen to Mudgirl/Mudwoman lurking, unhealed, throughout the book. I wanted so much for her to take more responsibility for her life and attempt to truly address the psychological darkness that eroded her personal happiness. Joyce Carol Oates is clearly a talented author and the book was well read.
