I actually did enjoy this but it was a little hard to get into at times. There were times I couldn't stop reading and other times I would have rather read something else. I did like that I was pretty sure I knew who the guilty party was, but yet, I could see how several other people couldn't have been the murderer. I felt that it had a good ending and I was satisfied! It's also told in the point of view of many people in the community so at times it was a little hard to tell who's view it was. It's a pretty dark story.

I received this courtesy of the First To Read program in exchange for my honest review. ( )

After reading some of the other reviews of this book, I'm glad I listened to the audio version. The lack of quotation marks did not interfere with my enjoyment, although some of the chararacter transitions took a minute or two for me to catch up with. There is a great deal of sadness conveyed with the Cole family losing their farm and parents, Justine's accident, plus the murder of Katherine Clare going unsolved for 20 some years. However, the descriptions of the area and townsfolk drew me in and kept me listening late into the night. There were twists and surprises that kept me guessing, even though I was pretty sure I knew what was going on. ( )

One of those stories where you know most of the end at the beginning.

The rest of the book fills in the parts between with a switching perspective between married couple Catherine and George, and towards the end, their daughter Frannie.

It's a subtle twist on the haunted house format. Here, it's the adults who are haunted (from the outside, we'll never know the ghosts in a marriage or the personal demons people are contending with is kind of the idea) and how that affects the kids growing up in their care.

It reminded me a bit of Patricia Highsmith's, The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Opinions on the ending vary, but I thought the resolution was satisfying overall. Poetic, if not actual, justice is served.

Subtle and artful - recommended. ( )

It's part murder mystery and part ghost story. It is also a close look at how guilt from the past affects the present and the future...and how what we often want is not what we sometimes get. We learn early on in the story that it’s not only houses that can be haunted...but people also. The novel asks so many questions that can't always be answered without lots of thought such as how well can we really know anyone? Is there even such a thing as evil? Does the spirit or energy last and thrive after death? And maybe the most important...how do we ever heal from violence and loss? It's a read that can only be described as riveting and absorbing. ( )

I loved this book. I probably loved it a bit more than I should have because it was set in the seventies and in a small town in upstate NY. All familiar territory for me. Quirks and flaws popping up all over the place. The slow unraveling of the plot, knowing the fate of all from the first chapter. I loved generational aspects of the story. ( )
