There is a thin line between literature that is florid and pretentious, and literature that is lyrically beautiful. This novel is definitely the latter. A compelling story of many people, told on two separate but related timelines, this story of loss, love, and finding oneself is utterly satisfying in every regard. The author clearly loves her wordplay, though it does not bog down the story. The characters are flawed and real, the setting achingly realistic (as anyone who grew up in a small coastal town can attest to), and the story poignant and moving. I highly recommend this one!

I love this kind of writing - foggy, mysterious, disjointed and nonetheless beautiful.
