    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.

    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The only people who might enjoy it is if they are a big Oates fan.


    Has Mudwoman turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I have learned to read all of the reviews before buying a book after being totally disappointed in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    As a great lover of mysteries, I decided to take a break, and read a different genre. I thought it would be nice to read a female author. Oates has left me frustrated with Mudwoman. I kept thinking that M R would get her act together, but, unlike her intellectual level, her emotional level is that of a 20 year old. I found the story a bit confusing and it seemed to go in circle, rather than resolving matters. There are too many wonderful books to be read, but this is not one of them.
