I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This book, while written with excellent mastery of language, was so confusing it was impossible to follow the story. The constant interruptions of the narrative to flash back to the McCarthy witch-hunt era, seemed to have no connection to the other story of a young boy deliberately stranded overnight by this father on an island.
It was a constant struggle to remember the large number of characters and their relationship to each other.
I was glad when the book ended.
