“A wonderfully atmospheric literary mystery.”
“[A] moving story of mothers and daughters and the hard choices women must make…Goodman combines gripping suspense with strong characters and artistic themes. Those who read Anita Shreve or Jodi Picoult are likely to become fans."
“Goodman delivers the goods her fans expect in this atmospheric and fast-moving gothic story: buried secrets, supernatural elements, and a creepy setting. Her storytelling is as solid as ever, and the book is reliably entertaining.”
