Haunting, lush, and lyrical.... Weaving a sensitive psychological portrait with a powerful tale of pursuit, Benson writes with a poetic voice as passionate as it is precise.
A richly evocative, beautifully imagined, and warmly engaging novel about the mysterious spells individuals cast over one another, most potently the spell of an elusive mother. Kate Benson is a natural storyteller.
Wholly original. Kate Benson knows how to hold the reader in suspense.
This is the deepest, purest first novel of the year.
