3.5 stars. There was some really beautiful prose in this book. The storyline focuses on a fractured family in the wake of the death of the father (not a spoiler, as this happens in the first 2 words of the book!). There is some intense and very disturbing violence.

Very very good: portraits of believable, flawed characters and their interactions with each other. Beautiful, descriptive writing. Everything perhaps wrapped up too neatly at the end, but at the same time, this is the sort of book where everything gets to wrap up neatly, with enough open-endedness to not make the ending feel cheap. Looking forward to reading more books by this author!

This book had a lyrical beauty. And also too much of it.
