A profound, realistic and beautifully written story of a foster family that I simply could not put down. Written by the author of The Orphans of Race Point - at real favorite at our bookshop.
The story of an American family in Bangkok in the 1970s and the impact of the son's disappearance. Brilliant writing, complex and nuanced characters and a vivid sense of place made this story impossible to put down.
The writing is so powerful and sparse - almost poetic. This is a story of nature at the brink of destruction, of great love and great loss. Brilliant, brilliant book!
