This is one of the best literary pieces I’ve ever had the fortune to set my eyes upon. The completeness of the desolation within, combined with the verdant nature without makes for a delightful combination of contradictory emotions. It was as if I’ve suffered alongside each and every character.
The book oozes Frank’s innermost misery over (in my eyes) his wife’s travails with battling cancer, especially through the arc of Saint Aliyah. It is astonishing and it moved me in a very profound way.
I loved reading it and I highly recommend it!
