I’m still looking for answers to vague, but important story lines. I finished the book confused and wondering if I missed something.
Interesting story. Clara is a compelling and innovative character, though I did feel that sometimes the sheer amount of how buried she--and we, as she is the narrator--becomes in her own inner narrative robbed a bit of urgency from the plot. Parts of the book were somewhat predictable, but interesting characters and good writing kept the journey enjoyable despite this. The tension between the spiritual and more concrete aspects of the story felt unwieldy, and like they should have been married together a little more seamlessly throughout the story, but again, I do not think this detracted so significantly that I wouldn't recommend it to a fan of the genre (I, in fact, will!).
This was a great read, or in my case "listen." This book was suggested to me by Rebecca Lowman, the narrator. She does a great job. The book focuses on Clara, a victim of a messy childhood who preps bodies for a funeral home. Clara has trouble letting anyone into her life but finds it difficult to ignore Tressie after discovering she is a victim of pedophilia. The story is enthralling and stayed with me afterwards. There is a wonderful description with flowers and life after death.
