This is my favorite of the author's novels. The main character moves through life with a silence worthy of attention, which she finally receives from the voices of the dead.
I think Reynolds' greatest writing talent is her ability to create unforgettable characters. Finch, the main character in this book, is no exception. She's strong-willed, she's sympathetic, she's brave to do all she must do in the face of mockery. Highly recommended.
Sheri Reyonolds is not for everyone,but I for one adore her books.Her subject matter is a little unusual,but her style is wonderful. Just like "The Rapture of Canaan" I couldn't put it down.
This book seems like it would be decent, but we had a recent death in the family and the whole "talking to dead people in the graveyard" thing was just not something I could handle emotionally at this time. I only read the first chapter.
