Read from May 18 to August 20, 2012

I'd never read Dunmore before. This novel is a psychological thriller with some nice poetic passages. It explores a mystery from two sisters' childhood and the relationship of the two women as adults. The narrative moves along rapidly, and the author's use of language is at times exquisite. There are also some notably frank sexual passages. The denouement didn't blow me away quite as much as I thought it would.
