A unique book which successfully crosses into several genres. The plot revolves around the two main characters Kai and Oliver, a married couple with some unusual problems. Kai is a telepath, whose absorption of the thoughts and feelings of others has pushed her to the brink of suicide. Oliver is determined to save her but keeps his own painful past off the radar. Oliver takes Kai back to his home town of Butternut, Wisconsin in order to save her, but in doing so, he is forced to confront his painful past and secrets which could blow the entire community apart. Romance, magic realism, thriller and mystery. And it works. This book held me from start to finish. It was understated and really quite glorious. Highly recommended.
Anyone can write if they put the hard work and dedication in, even those idiots who stand around prattling about wishing and luck. Talent is just following through on a decision to be good at something. Right?
