Another William Coles book under my belt and I enjoyed it immensely, the book was an elevated literary fiction book in which the character study and the amazing writing balanced well with the plot.
I would honestly say that the writing took me by surprise because the author transported me into the individual thoughts with such rich language and descriptions that you felt sympathetic toward some characters and understood their decisions even though you won’t necessarily agree with them.
I think there’s a lot of this in the book – how each character contributed to the story, their actions, right and wrong, woven so intricately into their community, and how it was like a domino effect.
Overall, I love Coles’ writing style as well, the right amount of descriptive writing, action, and dialogue. It’s a great book!
