Living without a strong support system can cause long lasting effects. In this story we see the results of a young Isabelle's choices affecting not only her inability to find self satisfaction but her ongoing struggle to find her place in the sun. Her daughter's struggle with similar problems forces Isabelle to come to terms with life and braking this cycle resulting in a more meaningful life for both mother and daughter.

It Can't Happen Here

Although fiction and written many years ago, there is a great similarity between the dissolutionment of government in our novel and our own present day situation. This novel teaches that more than ever we must all make informed decisions and become as self reliant as possible.
