Customer Reviews

“An engrossing family drama . . . brilliantly constructed and flawlessly written . . . An emotional and satisfying story of how a complicated family and their outliers handle life’s most pivotal moments.”

— Library Journal (starred)

“Rieger wrestles perceptively with difficult questions and . . . shines incrementally increasing light on the Falkes’ extended web of familial and emotional ties, sucking the reader into the tangle of emotions and conflicting interests . . . a tense, introspective account of looking for truth, and instead finding peace.”

— Publishers Weekly (starred)

“[An] assured novel of family, money, and secrets, reminiscent in theme and tone of Edith Wharton . . . just in time for poolside reading, this elegant novel wears its intelligence lightly.”

— Kirkus Reviews (starred)
