This narrator is so good and it is always fun to return to this series. This one broke my heart just a bit though.

This in audio format was fantastic!!! Kudos to the narrator, Xe Sands. She brought Lillian to life in the best way.

This was long, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Spooky.

Lindy Spooky is a good description. I enjoyed it too. 2y
Matchkim @Lindy it never answers anything. Just leaves you with that spooky feeling. 2y
Lindy @Matchkim Yes, I love books with open endings. My book group read this and the ending generated a lot of interesting discussion. 2y
Lindy @Matchkim It‘s a ghost story, so feeling unsettled at the end seems like the response the author was aiming for. 2y

Have you ever went to take a drink of something and it turns out to be something you weren't expecting. It weirds you out for a minute.Normally you like it, but you were expecting something else. This book was like that for me. I expected more a magical realism story.It had some magical elements, but that really didn't have too much to do with the story. It was a good story overall about immigration/refugees experiencing life.How life just exists.
