The matriarch of a Long Island clan with a stubbornly suicidal son and a defiant, restless granddaughter, Esther has hired a Russian landscaper to watch over the family as well as the grounds of their secluded waterfront estate. But he has been watching Esther, too. And his love for her is growing wild enough to uproot them all.
The author of Here on Earth and The River King presents a "stunning and hypnotic" novel that "interweaves past and present with piercing images and unfailing energy" (Publishers Weekly).

Very dysfunctional family
Alice Hoffman is a very visual writer.
In fact she is my favourite novelist but this book is very dark. I could not like or care about any of the characters. The last chapter was the only one that slightly redeemed one of the characters. But I must say the novel held my interest in the last few chapters.
