  • Excellent literary novel Cullen gets into the psychology of his characters he can vividly paint a character and his psychological make up in a paragraph usual I am not recounting plot, but enough to say this it is a tale that is as unyielding as it is moving it is raw and it is tender, it is lonely and it is full of love an longing and fear and finality Loved it.
