Read this book as part of the new book club, would not ordinarily have picked it as do not read much fiction. It did grab me with the interests of the varied protagonists, the feel of claustrophobia of a small town, the limited options for both men and women during that time period, and especially the moral decision that the sheriff had to make between doing the right thing and tearing up his family. The effect WW2 had on the culture was interesting too, how unfairly a man was treated if he didn't fight even if he was too disabled to fight.
The rights of First American women are still being denied in the justice system, it would have been nice to have been able to say "Well things are so much better for them now".
