The Short Take:
This well-written book leads you down misleading paths yet ultimately delivers a very well structured and satisfying read.
This story of love and family is told from different perspectives — thankfully, not mixed together like so many books these days. It’s hard to say much about this novel without ruining the reading experience, so my comments will be exceptionally short.
The story line might upset you at some point. Just trust the author. It’s a beautifully crafted book, inspired by the author’s loss of his own infant daughter, though no infants die in this story. It tells of two lives, how they intertwine and how they unravel.
A Little Plot:
Very, very little in this case: the headmaster of a prestigious prep school becomes obsessed with a student. That’s all you’re getting from me. The author’s website is more forthcoming. Click here to visit. Or just read the book. It’s short. It’s excellent.
