Easily one of the best novels I’ve read this year! An engrossing, well written story about a family falling apart and coming together. Set in current day Houston, Texas, the story is told through the four perspectives of the four different family members. There isn’t really one main character. You have Elson, a failed architect in the middle of a mid-life crisis, his son Richard, a gay poet who seems just as lost as his father, and his wife, Cadence, who is trying to go back to college after raising her two grown children. The last storyline is the daughter Chloe’s, the novel’s main character, if there is one. I don’t want to give away any spoilers about her story, but at the start of the novel she is kicked out of college and this becomes the issue the other characters have to deal with.

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a novel that’s gripped me this much. I literally had trouble putting it down and finished it in less than two days. I love the author’s writing style. Everything felt very believable and the character’s lives were richly developed. I would recommend this novel to almost anyone and am now curious to read the author’s first book!
