i really liked this book - the way the complex’s matriarchal characters are woven together was subtle and well done. it’s a slow simmer of a book revealing family secrets and a connection to land that was nicely depicted.

All Whom I Have Loved by Aharon Appelfeld
"This book has the same direct, sparse style marked predominantly by simple declarative sentences as Appelfeld’s other novels do. He provides just enough description of the setting to give one a visual sense of the surroundings and/or of the people..." Read more of this review »
The Storied City by Charlie English
