THE MARS ROOM
York City. As their stories unfold, so too does the dark mystery of their mother’s life during World War II, which took her from California to Japan to Hawaii. Despite its occasional tendency to get bogged down in overly long, confusing lashbacks, Shadow Child is a well written and The Mars Room is set in a women’s prison in California, where the main character, a smart, stripper single mom named Romy Hall, is serving two consecutive life sentences for killing her stalker. As she remembers her life on the outside, she also learns from her fellow inmates how to live on the inside.
The Mars Room is about the justice system and its failings. But it’s also about female toughness and endurance in its most extreme forms. This heartbreaking, frustrating and beautiful book gave me a pit in my stomach that didn’t go away once I inished reading.
