3.0 out of 5 stars Water, water everywhere
By Katherine A Speeckaert on September 1, 2021
Much the way water moves and flows in a river so the water is always becoming new again, I worry that these characters will wash right out of my memory because they are kind of insubstantial. A bit like a shallow, muddy stream, I feel like they weren't fleshed-out enough for my taste.

The novel has a really interesting theme of what water takes away from the members of this family, and at the same time what the water brings.

It wasn't a bad book, I just felt a lot of emotional distance from the characters, like I didn't get a full enough picture of who they are. But the story was beautifully crafted and worth reading.
