it was ok
Recommended for: whomever wants a light read with mild deep thought.
Read in August, 2007

This is a book about loss told through the eyes of a twelve year old. Although, I did find that the "voice" of the twelve year old was caught between speaking in the past and present tenses.

The losses range from the loss of a parent, sibling, child, innocence, trust and childhood. The story begins with a father and daughter walking in the snow and finding a baby freezing to death in a sleeping bag. This will begin the unfolding of the story behind the father and daughter.

I have read Anita Shreve before and this particular novel feels rushed. In comparison, it rushes to reveal the characters and their motivations. Unlike her other books that dig deep and make you feel what the characters are feeling.

All in all it was a quick and kinda good read.
