A family drama tinted with magical realism in the style of Gabriel García Márquez, permeated by an overwhelming sense of dread and despair, à la Edgar Allan Poe. Yet, author Laura Gentile finds her own voice in an intriguing and unique story. Challenging and at times hard to read, but also hard to put down. -R. on Goodreads
