"Starred Review: No Tremain novel is like any other. This one is much darker but no less compelling than the celebrated The Road Home. Read her for her lushly descriptive settings, her deeply flawed but intensely interesting characters, and her imaginative plots." -- Library Journal "Two pairs of siblings and their twisted pasts converge in this gripping, dark novel from Orange Prize-winner Tremain (The Road Home)... Tremain renders this untamed area with haunting prose." -- Publishers Weekly "A dark and unflinching novel... Tremain knows how to work the authorial searchlight... She grabs her readers by their ankles and dangles them over the abyss. She spares us nothing and she never lets us go." -- The New York Times Book Review
