Gorgeous, immersive novel. Mackintosh builds a world of women (1 mother, 3 daughters), ruled by one man, King. They live an isolated island life with a barrier of toxicity and fear of the evil of men. The narrative alternates between the unified voice of the girls, Lia's perspective, and Grace's POV. The girls seem to be of one mind until their lives start changing when King disappears and men arrive on the island. Fascinating, surreal novel.
