I have read quite a few of this authors offerings. She always seems to manage to bring in the unthinkable that merges with the boundaries of society. It isn't in a sledgehammer way either, she likes to blend it in subtly with the background and before you know it the reader is thinking about issues they usually avoid.This book is different from her other books. It is more like watching waves grow higher from the top of a high cliff. Her writing has evolved and become calmer, as she herself has settled into the role of storyteller.I think Emma's first monologue of past events sounds a little stinted and there are one or two typos.The concept will perhaps give a few readers a new outlook on certain aspects of unusual family constellations, then again some may find it controversial. I however thought it was a very good read.
