    New author for me; I liked this book

    It's always like finding a treasure when I discover I like a book by an author unknown to me up to this point in my reading. The writing is a bit florid at times; I found I had to reread sentences sometimes to make sure I understood the author's intent. The plot is certainly unique. The dysfunctional family has some issues that are not unique, but the plot and setting give them a different twist. I would say this was a refreshing change from much of today's fiction.

    Not what I expected

    A dear friend and fellow reader gave me this as a gift (maybe because she knows I love opera?). At any rate, my usual fare is page-turner suspense: thrillers, espionage, mysteries and such. This book is none of those things, but the writing is just phenomenal. I saw the ending a mile away, but the story is told in such a compelling way, with colorful imagery incorporating all senses and skillful use of metaphors and similies, that it just carried me along.Good stuff.
