This book deals with the feelings involved for family members left behind after a suicide, and it does a wonderful job exploring those emotions. I appreciated the Taiwan setting and the beliefs and customs that are highlighted, but I had a hard time with the disjointed storytelling (much of the story is told in memory flashbacks), so I never quite connected with the characters. Still, the writing is beautiful, and the book tackles an important topic that has touched many people.

Stephanie Hsu did a lovely job with the narration.

***Disclosure: I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review (but ended up listening to the audiobook from my library). No other compensation was given and all opinions are my own.***
