    Heartbreaking

    A wonderfully funny and poignant novel about a family with an unusual twist. When she was five, Rosemary's sister, Fern, was sent to stay with her grandparents and never returned. Rosemary's older brother, Lowell, disappeared soon afterwards. The novel is narrated by an adult Rosemary as she tries to piece together her broken childhood and make sense of events that she barely remembers. This is a truly unique story about the damage which family members do to each other and is one which haunts the reader for a long time after the book is closed.

    Bittersweet childhood: semi-intrigue

    A gorgeous tale of growing up. Slightly disappointing however in its treat of Lowell and even Fern. Their lives skimmed over briefly. Would have preferred a more in depth exploration. Nice, quick read.

    The book starts off with

    The story in the middle, and loops back to the beginning. Plot twists and a strong philosophical thread makes it an interesting read.
