Read in October, 2011

Woods keeps the reader guessing right to the last page while crafting a plot with more twists and turns than a silly straw, all in an incredibly thoughtful and well-written novel. Her sense of place is evocative, her characters richly drawn, her command of language dexterous, and her ability to balance all the elements in the story without resorting to cliche or predictable devices unexpected. This debut effort is further proof that there are undiscovered novelists out there who can more than keep up with the big names. I expect we'll be hearing more of Gae-Lynn Woods in the future. Tip of the hat to a remarkable book by a promising talent.
