I found this to be an interesting deviation from Connor's usual style - she usually favors a highly eccentric premise with a hint of mystery. This is her first novel published since she became a National Book Award Finalist for The Truth as Told by Mason Buttle (2018), so perhaps she's using that career milestone as a pivot into experimental territory. It strongly reminded me of Polly Horvath's writing - the nutty estranged family members, the pastoral setting, and the protagonist's furtive work on a project aimed at reuniting familial ties. I really enjoyed this book, and am excited to see whether Connor continues with this new style. ~ Reviewed by Nadja Tiktinsky
