Thea grew up poor and still was, but she provided food and a place to live for her family. She considered herself lucky and happy.Jill’s former life was somewhat easier. Married to a controlling businessman, she believed herself a member of the fortunate upper middle class. She lacked for nothing, except perhaps happiness.Lucy, on the other hand, led a tumultuous life. Growing up with a mother who never wanted her, she was anything but happy.
