This insomniac's opinion:
This novel is melancholy, winding and beautiful. From the first page I stepped inside of the world of Annie Bell during the dust storm and was lost inside Oklahoma until I turned the final page. It is the story of resilience during times of deep sadness and the bonds of family even when discovering just how imperfect those you love are.
