The best book Hightower has ever written. Gripping. And sad. This family could be EveryFamily in that it shows how very badly things can go wrong between people who deeply care about each other.

It bothers me that I didn't like this book more. It has all the makings of an intriguing mystery and has prose that borders on poetry. Yet I can't help feeling the author was having trouble staying focused and ended up writing another book. High Water is ethereal in substance and this makes it difficult to buy as credible. I kept waiting for the narrator to laugh aloud and say "Gotcha! April Fools!"
The narrator has a beautiful voice but didn't sound comfortable with the realistic aspects of the book. She would make a great orator and/or poet, but her dramatic quality is disturbing for a reader of concrete fiction.
I'm not sorry I listened to this book because it made me think and that's always a happening for which a reader should be grateful. Still, I would have liked more.
