The author begins describing her main character as a tourist, and that is a very adequate description of how the book reads. There are some truly breathtaking images painted which make you admire them for what they are, rather than how they flow with the rest of the book. Jumping around several generations was a bit disorienting at first, but by the middle I appreciated the greater depth they contributed to the novel. Worth it to hang in until the end. Nothing quite like the Book of Job in modern terms.
