"...the war between memory and mature reflection, childhood myth and adult analysis. A classic theme, but what makes this novel extraordinary is Patchett’s fair-minded presentation. She inhabits both the child and adult point of view. Both have their powers, their insights and deceptions, their vanities, cruelties and passions. The outcome is uncertain, lives hang in the balance, and we cannot stop reading. Subtle mystery, psychological page-turner, Patchett’s latest is a thriller."
-- Allegra Goodman, Washington Post, 9/20/19
"The spare Hemingway like language makes this family saga both approachable and intimately unambiguous. A joy to read, the author makes you forget a woman is crafting a mans narrative, deftly jumping back and forth between plausible dialogue from both genders. It’s the unpretentiousness that bowled me over, no gymnastic sentence development, no obtuse vocabulary, just empathy and terrific character development. Wonderful."
-- Edward Rutledge, Reader Review, Goodreads
