ESJM has once again written a stunner of a novel. She uses unexpected narrative shifts to show the interconections of each narrator's decisions with so many others. Lick throwing a pebble in a pond, the ripples shift towards and collide with other ripples. A woman lost at sea. A ponzi scheme. A half brother grappling with one bad decision — SO. GOOD.
