Book summary: “Ellen has brought her two children into the home of her in-laws – a loveless house – where calculated cruelty is a way of life preserved and perpetuated in the service of a rigid, exacting and angry God.”
Book review by The New Yorker: “Ansay transcends both feminist epic and Midwestern gothic to achieve, finally the lunar world of tragedy. This world is lit by the measured beauty of her prose, and the book’s final line is worth the pain it takes to get there.”
