When I called a friend a few weeks ago she said she was in the middle of reading Mondays are Yellow, Sundays are Grey by Ellen Prescott (Douglas & McIntyre) and could not put it down. This sounded like a good recommendation so when I finally got my hands on the book I made sure I had a chunk of time that I could devote to reading it. I needed that chunk. Prescott's story of the sexual abuse of her two infant daughters by their father is disturbing, but it is never sordid. As the story unfolds we get a picture of a young mother who becomes stronger and stronger as she first realizes that her children are being sexually abused, and then fights to deal with the situation. This is a gripping story which I read from start to finish at one sitting.
