The Conditions of Love by Dale M. Kushner
The writing is beautiful in this story. Eunice's life is rather like a series of unfortunate events because every time things seem to be going well something dreadful occurs. Beginning when she was 10 years old, in 1953, the book continues until she is 18 and then jumps to the future at the end for a look back at her life. It is a story of overcoming adversity and finding love. It is rather odd and quirky and the writing is so well done that it is just a lovely read.
