Cal believes his family is strong enough to weather this blow and hold out hope for Licia’s return, but as they all deal with the tragedy in different ways, doubts begin to creep in.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“McPherson is a beautiful writer whose voice is intense and intelligent. This exploration of the ever-expanding destructive effects of bad ideas is emotional, painful, and utterly memorable.” Alex Marwood, Edgar Award–winning author
“McPherson is a dab hand at creating realistically flawed characters to whom one just about manages to give the benefit of the doubt.” The Guardian
