A book I expected to be dark and full of hate, turned into a book of hope and despair. The tale of Jemma and Rozzie is something everyone can relate to. The tale of of the older sister/younger sister. They both feel it. Yet once Rozzie is hit with becoming completely blind, there lives turn completely around and start to realize the important things around them.

The charm, wit, and wisdom of this novel really caught me by surprise and before I knew it, I couldn't stop reading. The sisters are faraway-close to each other in a way that seemed completely real but also intriguing. The issue of blindness never becomes maudlin and the entire work sustains a sense of humor that is both deadpan and laugh-out-loud funny. I missed the world of this book when I finished it. I can't recommend it enough!

This wonderful book draws you in from the opening page and doesn't let you go. I was constantly amazed at Ms. McGovern's seemingly effortless ability to weave together the smallest details and observations until they add up to something moving and even astounding. The way these two complex and incredibly well-drawn sisters know each other and at the same time refuse to know each other - and themselves - is both maddening and remarkably true to life. Perhaps the most brilliant turn of all here is the ending - not contrived or sensationalist but deeply, movingly satisfying.
