As with every Claire Fuller book I've read (and I highly recommend them all), her beautiful prose, complicated characters, and intricate plots drew me into the world and consumed me completely. You'll get lost in the lives of these characters that are so effortlessly stretched out before you through the letters from the characters' pasts and their present day struggles as truths about their family are revealed. It's engaging and enchanting, and you'll think about it long after you've finished it. — Konner
