From the winner of the Flannery O'Connor award for short fiction, comes a poignant and funny debut novel set over a contentious weekend on an animal sanctuary in rural Kansas. Mandelbaum does a brilliant job of building believable flawed nuanced characters and deeply complicated relationships, effectively exploring the unique love and tension between mother and daughter. And don't forget the animals! Hippo, Cleo, Old Crow. She reminds us of all that animals can teach humans, if we would only listen. A heart-tugging feel good charmer. ~ Reviewed by Tom Ferguson
