For most, the summer of 1988 was filled with sunshine and the sound of George Michael. But for eight-year-old Kris Barlow, it was her final summer with her mother; while other children watched Alf, she watched cancer eat her mother from within. Three decades later, loss returnsthis time in the form of her husband in a car accident. And so, Kris returns to the place where she first confronted lossto that house on Lost Lake where she watched the life ebb out of the body of the woman who once carried her inside her own. Its hereamongst the tallgrass and by the crystal shoresthat she and her eight-year-old daughter will make a stand against grief. Kris soon finds that although the quaint shops of Main Street are unchanged, the lake town of Pacington, Kansas carries its own deep burden. Inside the husk of the home where she last saw her mother, an old friend awaits the return of Kris Barlow.

His style of writing is impressive. Slow and creeping, but still captivating. Definitely gave me a reason to keep the lights on.

Creepy old house with a creepy ghost kid. Author keeps things moving. Lots of great references to ‘80s goth bands!! Nick Cave& Bad Seeds! Joy Division! The Cure!

I'm so excited to read this book, I read Kill Creek last year around this time and absolutely loved it and I am hoping to get lost in this as much as I did his other book.

“This is a waiting room, she thought. This is purgatory.“

Talk about a slow burn! Man oh man did this one just drag on. This novel landed in it's own kind of purgatory, in my “currently reading“ shelf for nearly a year. Yep, that's right, that's how long it finally took me to complete it. #NetGalley #slowburn

This is a good story. Could‘ve been a great story, but it‘s filled with too many dull details. I skimmed through parts. And can we institute a rule that says authors can‘t use more than one simile per page? Way too many similes! I liked the creepy plot and the characters. 3.5/5

ferskner This is possibly my favorite cover of the year. My co-workers and I can't stop talking about it. 3y
ljuliel That is a cool cover ! 3y
