    This book was one I found on my shelf, picked up decades ago at a second hand book sale and never read It was a really strange book to read a surreal feel that made me feel almost like I was dreaming The writer does well with this sort of dreamlike lyrical style, blending metaphor into reality in such a way that the boundaries blur Often, though, I felt the writing wasinteresting than the story, and I found it hard to really get a hold on the characters, and why they were who they were This book was one I found on my shelf, picked up decades ago at a second hand book sale and never read It was a really strange book to read a surreal feel that made me feel almost like I was dreaming The writer does well with this sort of dreamlike lyrical style, blending metaphor into reality in such a way that the boundaries blur Often, though, I felt the writing wasinteresting than the story, and I found it hard to really get a hold on the characters, and why they were who they were, doing the things they did

    one motion of individual want sends trembles around a circle of dependents, until the whole helpless ring knocks and shakes like a tray of wineglasses in an unsteady waiter s hands Any music they make is random, involuntary and brief one can t be still unless they all are, and they never are.

    This is a story of shadows, of how people interact behind themselves A beautiful love story, a desperate family situation, and the trademark of Jim Lewis all work together to create a perfect, if dark, work of fiction.

    The only thing that bumped this from a 2 star rating to three was that the novel is compelling I was driven to find out what happened The writing is fine but not fabulous I also both enjoyed and hated the ending a good thing.
