“Masterful … haunting … sublime … Zarhin’s characters are so real they fairly jump off the page … In a narrative that bobs and weaves skillfully across decades, we witness a family’s unraveling through infidelity, deception, misplaced desire, death and disappointment. In the end, however, we are left with a glimmer of hope.”
