Could not get passed the first 100 pages of this book ... the narrative was confusing, and it was never really clear what the main thread of the story was. Mostly it seemed to be a study in guilt, and how it can effect a person over the long term. Around page 100 I just gave up and moved on.

This book was a huge disappointment, after all the media hype. I kept waiting to find out why the mother killed her daughter and what happened to the older daughter; these were the central issues of the story. The author didn't answer either question. On a larger, overall issue, the author wants us to sympathize with the mother after she brutally kills her daughter; this is just too much to accept as a believeable ending.

So excited to reccomend this novel...Emily Ruskovich's debut novel.
This story of family is cut with such a balance of light and darkness...it is simply
Heartbreaking.
E.R. Reminds me of Alice Munro ,and Robin Black.
Her talent is large; truly a gifted storyteller .
If you only like chronological lines in your reading..this isn't for you.
If you only like certainty or ready answers ..not for you.
For a book group ..this choice would ignite discussion.
Read it for yourself , then share, share, share!
