's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: debut, read-in-2016

This book will almost certainly be in the top ten books I read this year, unless something amazing happens to my book choices in the next four months.
Ruskovich's writing is remarkably beautiful; the descriptions of the mountain and the forest are breathtaking. And the fact that she doesn't provide clear answers, that everything is a little hazy, makes it exactly the kind of book I enjoy. I loved how as Ann tries to collect and hold all the pieces of what happened out on the mountain, just as they fade from Wade's mind. The characters are complex and real, their motivations always understated; I even came to sympathise with and cry for Jenny, despite what she did. It is a wonderful book and I'll be recommending it to anyone who will listen.
It's published in the UK in Feb 2017.

Sue I hated the ending! What really happened in the truck? Is Ivy June? I just got the feeling that Jenny took the fall for someone else!
