i love amy greene. i want her to write stories like this (and Bloodroot) forever and ever.
as with Bloodroot, this book is perfectly written. not a wasted word, not a misplaced thought. the characters are so full of emotion and sadness and nuance. i truly believe that they are jumping off the pages and living in the real world.
this is a story of family. a mother's love (both annie and beulah). how far someone will go for what they believe in.
it's just amazing, beautifully written - beautifully read and will be revisited soon.

I loved Bloodroot but this did not live up to my expectations. It was overly sentimental, and melodramatic. Greene has a way with words, but got lost in the gratuitous descriptions that did not serve character development or plot development .The beauty of the language in this novel is undeniable. However, the storyline seemed heavily reliant on the rich language alone to propel the story. It wasn't enough for me. I wanted to know more about Silver, Beulah, Mary, and Amos.
