|I received an advance uncorrected proof of this book through Goodreads in exchange for an honest view.
This is a beautifully written book. The author has a true talent for detailed descriptions.
I really enjoyed the multiple perspectives shown in the narrative as the reader explores how a tragic event effects the various family members.
The reason I gave this book three starts is because, plot-wise, the story is slow and not much happens. This is more of a book about personal growth rather than one with an active plot.
However, it was still well written and really delves into the psychology of humans and how each person learns to live in the world, which has always fascinated me. The ties to religion and culture and how multiple cultures intersect was very interesting.
Overall, a good read.
