“Brunonia Barry has claimed Salem, Massachusetts, as her own locale--even using Hawthorne's House of Seven Gables--and the town couldn't ask for a better chronicler. Just as the city is a place of haunted mystery, so is the life of Zee Finch, who is forced to confront both past and present when caring for her ailing father. With characters that are rich, engaging, and sympathetic, Barry has created a world that perfectly expresses ordinary life.”
