Publisher's Summary

A contemporary Gothic from an author in the company of Kelly Link and Aimee Bender, Mr. Splitfoot tracks two women in two times as they march toward a mysterious reckoning.
Ruth and Nat are orphans packed into a house full of abandoned children run by a religious fanatic. To entertain their siblings, they channel the dead. Decades later Ruth's niece, Cora, finds herself accidentally pregnant. After years of absence, Aunt Ruth appears, mute and full of intention. She is on a mysterious mission, leading Cora on an odyssey across the entire state of New York on foot. Where is Ruth taking them? Where has she been? And who - or what - has she hidden in the woods at the end of the road?
In an ingeniously structured dual narrative, two separate timelines move toward the same point of crisis. Their merging will upend and reinvent the whole. A subversive ghost story that is carefully plotted and elegantly constructed, Mr. Splitfoot will set your heart racing and your brain churning. Mysteries abound, criminals roam free, utopian communities show their age, and the mundane world intrudes on the supernatural - and vice versa.

Annoying

I was excited about this one and super let-down. Nothing happens, it just goes in circles, and the voice of Ruth was so airy and irritating I found myself yelling at it

Not the gothic for me

On paper this should have been my new favorite book with the religious fundamentalism and cults and Kelly Link comparisons but I struggled to get through the book and spent most of the middle bored and looking for patterns.
I bumped it up to 3 stars because I enjoyed the ending despite seeing the plot twist miles from the end.
I also have given up on books narrated by Cassandra Campbell; her tone of voice hear made me think of a disgruntled librarian and I just can't anymore.

Fantastic journey

Loved this journey. I didn't know what to expect but I listened to the whole story intently, pleased with the discovery.
The narration was excellent, both narrators voices immersed me deeper into the story.
