    From the author of The Secret History comes a dark, suspenseful novel of lost childhood. Harriet Dusfresnes is a child in Mississippi, haunted by the murder of her brother when she was just a baby. He was found hanging from a tree in their backyard; his killer was never identified, nor did the family ever recover. Only Harriet's teenage sister might have seen what happened that day, and she has blocked it out from her memory.

    Overall

    A lot might have been done with this story, but instead we are asked to endure many hours of pointless description with very little plot. You expect that some of the elements the author sets up will be significant later. Not so here. In fact the author seems to end the book because she's tired of writing, not because she has brought the reader to an actual end.
