Just finished racing through the final 80 pages of my advanced reading copy of this stellar book and I am still tingling with breathlessness. Can't wait for its release in June, when I can share it with and recommend it to everyone! It is described as a cross between The Paris Wife and Into Thin Air, which it is, but I would even compare it to one of my all-time faves, Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood. It takes brilliant writing technique and storytelling ability to take a story out of the history books, when we all know how it's going to end, and still shape and craft an intimate portrait with so much tension that we still hope for a different outcome. I can't tell you how excited I am by this book!
