This family drama really sucked me in from the very beginning. I love Julie Cantrell's writing style. Her writing is lyrical and deep without weighing down the story with too many details. Her characters are introspective and flawed. Sometimes I found them to be immature. I had a lot of sympathy for them, but they really needed to grow up. Still, by the end of the book they had come a long way. I enjoy the Oxford, Mississippi setting and the Faulkner references. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy southern contemporary fiction.
I received this book for free for the purpose of review.
