Put this on your “must read” list. I stayed up way too late last night because I couldn’t stop. This may be the first time I’ve seen an author structure a book by telling the crisis in the first chapter, then playing out all the aspects of it (both chronologically before and long after the event) in the rest of the book. Outstanding in every way. I was wonderfully, painfully connected to all of the characters — even the elephant! — both treasuring and bemoaning their relationships. Well worth the sacrificed sleep!
