Descripción

Grenadine Scotch Wild has only vague memories of the parents she last saw when she was six years old. But she's never forgotten their final, panicked words to her, urging Grenadine to run. The mystery of their disappearance is just one more frayed strand in a life that has lately begun to unravel completely. One year into her rocky marriage to Covey, a well known investor, he is arrested for fraud and embezzlement. And Grenadine, now a successful collage artist and painter, is facing jail time despite her innocence.


With Covey refusing to exonerate her unless she comes back to him, Grenadine once again takes the advice given to her so long ago: she runs. Hiding out in a mountain town in central Oregon until the trial, she finds work as a bartender and as assistant to a furniture maker who is busy rebuilding his own life. But even far from everything she knew, Grenadine is granted a rare chance, as potentially liberating as it is terrifying-to face down her past, her fears, and live a life as beautiful and colorful as one of her paintings.

    Another lovely book by Cathy Lamb. Grenadine Scotch Wild is found by the side of the road when she is 6 years old covered in blood. Her story unfolds through long forgotten memories and the reports of her many social workers as she is passed from foster home to foster home. She has just left her husband and is starting fresh in a place no one knows her, the generosity and kindness of strangers helps Grenadine come to grips with her past and move on to her future.

    This is a wonderful book. It is dark and intense, but also light and hopeful. Grenady is leaving her husband and trying to start over again. Our heroine is a strong woman, determined to make the best of her life in spite of some bad choices and bad luck. She is determined to escape the bad memories of her childhood while at the same time trying to reconnect and remember what happened to her before she was put into foster care. This is the first book I have read by this author, but I will definitely look forward to more from her.. .

    Having won a copy of What I Remember Most as a Goodreads First Read book, I mistakenly thought that this would be a romance novel about a woman, who was leaving an estranged husband, to find a new life and possibly love in a small Oregon town called Pineridge. Although the novel did develop in this way, it was so much more about the life of woman named Grenady Scotch Wild, who was found, abandoned by a trucker off the side of the road when she was six years old. Grenady never knew the reason for her parents’ disappearance, and it haunted her in the ensuing years. Throughout the story, the author inserted flashes of recall in which Grenady would remember the phrase, “Run, Grenady, run,” and occasionally very dark and weird children’s nursery rhymes or poetry would be presented by someone named Butch or Danny. This signaled that something had probably gone amiss in this young child’s life to leave her homeless and without a family.As Grenady moves from foster home to foster home, her experiences of abuse and mistreatment were inconsolable and so unforgivable. Realizing that this was a work of fiction, it did still leave me wondering if such exploitation really does happen, and I was appalled at what a child in foster care might have to endure.In the beginning of the novel, I would occasionally bristle with the author’s choice of words, such as the Big V, in describing the vaginal area, but after reading about Grenady’s difficult life through the foster care system, I could understand how the author would choose to have Grenady speak in those terms.I don’t know why I thought this book would be a light read, but it turned out to be very gripping and involved. I was most impressed with the strength of the main character, Grenady, and she spoke to me in how she was so resilient and determined in the face of tremendous adversity.
