Don't be put off by the dark subject matter. Perry has taken a story that would have been an unmitigated tragedy in other hands and infused it with warmth, light, and humanity. It’s a story about people, about the challenges and hard-won victories of the working poor, about the decisions strong women make under the most unsympathetic circumstances, and the way family ties break down and rebuild in the aftermath of a tragedy. Perry is both clear-eyed but compassionate toward the people in her book, especially the men who passed in and out of her and her mother’s life. I’m stunned at how an author who has lived through such darkness has managed to write with such generosity toward so many. Like the author, I grew up in rural Maine. This book filled me with aching homesickness for both the people and landscape of my childhood. Read this exceptional book. It’s timely. It’s wonderful.
