I received an invitation to read an advance copy of this book and I accepted because the concept struck me as fascinating, given what I’ve read on generational trauma. I’d never read a Jamie Ford novel before; to be completely honest, I hadn’t heard of his writing. I am so thankful to Atria Books for reaching out to me with this one, because by the second chapter, I was completely hooked (I’m now looking forward to reading Ford’s previous novels).
Every so often as you read a book, you find yourself feeling that this one is really going to be something amazing. I trust that in reading, because it’s never once steered me wrong, and I felt that from the beginning of this novel. This story was glorious. Beautifully written and a fully intriguing plot.
