The evocative imagery highlights the best sensations of a Vermont summer. The inside glimpse of the secrets old wealth may hold rivets the reader from page one. Written from the view point of an “outsider”, the contradictory feelings of wanting to belong and realizing that money does not make one a better person highlights the conflicts that we all face in our lives.
The story does a great job of wrapping up loose ends and leaves the reader feeling that the entire story was told. This is important to me because I dislike novels that leave you asking questions about what happened. It was really hard to put down, with engaging characters and lots of plot twists that mirror reality. The sort of situation where you think it is all mapped out but someone throws the whole plan to the wind with a sudden revelation.
