Lengthy and tense with a family, a house, and ritual, add richly atmospheric writing, and a heavy dose of mystery to this novel and you’ve got a slight idea of what you’re thinking about reading. This story was so richly crafted that my recap only gives you a concept of what you’re maybe looking at.
I’ll be honest, this was reading that required patience and attention - this isn’t a fun, fluffy read, it’s not really dark but there is a definite creepy factor in parts. The story moves back and forth over three separate timelines and there’s a deep tension all throughout. I found the beginning a little slow but it picked up nicely and I found that I was captivated by this one, and raced through the rest of it, so I could find out what the ending would be.
