Every sentence of Robinson’s novels are perfectly constructed. It is rumored she doesn’t continue on to the next sentence until the one she is presently on reaches its finished form in her exacting eye. This is her first and perhaps finest novel, a story of family tragedy that orphans the narrator and her sister. When their brooding, quirky aunt arrives to raise them, rivalries simmer and reputations are altered forever. Masterful and hauntingly beautiful prose pulls this slow-burning book to its lingering conclusion. ~ Reviewed by Joe Michon-Huneau
