The character who really impacted me was Lesya. My heart just ached for her. She obviously had a great strength about her to function as well as she did with her challenges (both physical and from her parents). I agree with one of the other readers that it broke my heart when she killed her chicken, she must have been feeling such a great amount of rage and pain to do that to something she loved so much--sadly, children learn what we teach them, don't they?

I wondered if part of her motivation behind killing Happiness was knowing (if she did) that it had been recommended that she be left to die when she was born because of her deformity.
