    I was blown away by The Wolf Tone The prose is confident and fresh, the voice unique I was thoroughly sucked into the narrative and the characters, which surprised me because this quirky cast and the many plot twists could easily have gone wrong in less skilled hands I found myself empathizing with the distinct female narratives from a young, single mother dating a pot grower, to an uber poised and polished professional musician even though their lives and personalities were vastly remov I was blown away by The Wolf Tone The prose is confident and fresh, the voice unique I was thoroughly sucked into the narrative and the characters, which surprised me because this quirky cast and the many plot twists could easily have gone wrong in less skilled hands I found myself empathizing with the distinct female narratives from a young, single mother dating a pot grower, to an uber poised and polished professional musician even though their lives and personalities were vastly removed from mine The ending brings a number of complex threads to a satisfying end, while leaving just enough to the reader s imagination I spent most of two days devouring Wolf Tone cover to cover also not something I often do

    In the first pages of The Wolf Tone, a broken collarbone and a stranger s phone message derail the life of a middle aged musician The characters hurtle through an emotional landscape as chaotic and transformative as the novel s spring weather in a southwest Montana town afternoons of fat, swirling snowflakes, followed by ice slick evenings or sun drenched mornings of dripping eaves and muddy puddles As relationships wobble and families get rearranged, tension builds in scenes both comical and In the first pages of The Wolf Tone, a broken collarbone and a stranger s phone message derail the life of a middle aged musician The characters hurtle through an emotional landscape as chaotic and transformative as the novel s spring weather in a southwest Montana town afternoons of fat, swirling snowflakes, followed by ice slick evenings or sun drenched mornings of dripping eaves and muddy puddles As relationships wobble and families get rearranged, tension builds in scenes both comical and wondrous, until the characters reach a tentative, hard won understanding of themselves I savored every page of their stumbles and attempts to connect as they survey the wreckage of crisis, dust themselves off, and try another unplanned, but promising path

    There is so much to love about this book the way the tension keeps on escalating really from the very first scene, the pacing just carries you along the way these very different worlds pot growing, classical music, second hand shopping are so vividly brought to life the humor, and how it exists alongside some much darker tones These characters live in a world that s far from the one I inhabit, but their struggles and perspectives felt so familiar, thanks to Stillwell s insightful writing There is so much to love about this book the way the tension keeps on escalating really from the very first scene, the pacing just carries you along the way these very different worlds pot growing, classical music, second hand shopping are so vividly brought to life the humor, and how it exists alongside some much darker tones These characters live in a world that s far from the one I inhabit, but their struggles and perspectives felt so familiar, thanks to Stillwell s insightful writing An interesting and compelling read

    Once I started this book, I couldn t stop reading it I was fascinated by the relationship between Eva and Margot and how they were going to navigate the challenges laid out before them Music played a large role in this novel Was it a character A metaphor for the character s journey It was important and I loved it but I can t nail it down with a label Read the book and let me know what you think

    I live in Montana, and my book group chose this book as our yearly local author selection I thoroughly enjoyed it, and Montana is represented perfectly Every year March or April were the heaviest snowfall months, and every year the people were shocked It is a good, slow burn and I raced through it to see what happens next Interesting cast of characters Terrific first novel

    This book draws the reader in right away The two lead characters are strong females that at first are seeming very different, but later are revealed as being kindred spirits in an odd way The story offers some action and and excitement as well as engaging character development and thought provoking situations that spread light on how messy life can get I highly recommend this book.
