The skeleton of the story replicates Ethan Frome, but Ms. Oates telling of the story is not to be missed. The difference between them is the inclusion of racism, a theme that she has dealt with in other novels. I found it hard to identify with Calla in the first half of the book but the ties were bound tightly as the action progressed, in the same way that the river flows quietly until it nears the falls.
