I think very highly of Joshilyn Jackson--she knows her way around a turn of phrase, but always in a way that adds to, rather than detracting from, the fascinating people she creates and the stories she tells about them. I have either loved or liked everything I've read by her. So keep this in mind when I say that this is without a doubt her best book yet. It sucked me in from the very first chapter, and when I finished it, I turned right around and started it all over again because I knew there were things I'd undoubtedly missed the first time through. It's a great story that kept me unable to put it down (even when it got very late and I should have been sleeping), and it has a very satisfying and yet completely realistic ending. I love this family! I wish they were real.
