I had to take a nap to sort what I think about this novel, because it felt like there were too many questions left unanswered. This debut novel has so much to enjoy—not only the sensitively wrought characters, the intricate plot, and the naturalistic dialogue, but also the evocative portrait of its setting. There is much enjoy in this novel—an intricate plot, rich, fully-realized characters, realistic dialog, the way the author chose the perfect words to evoke the sights, sounds, smells, and feel of the location—how we, the reader, experience the place and people--the soft cadence of Southern drawls that masks evil hearts, the salty sea air, uniting and dividing the people of Amberleen and Shell Heap Island, the hot-sweat lust for money as powerful and destructive as the coming storm, the whispered words that could be insanity or the gift of second sight.
