Beatriz Williams is generally a safe bet for me, as far as authors go, and this book was no exception; I loved the wartime Bahamas setting, as well as the chapters interspersed that were set around the turn of the century. Her portrayal of postpartum depression, at a time when people didn’t have a word for this condition and the woman was blamed for it, was especially emotionally powerful, and, as always, I closed this book eager to pick up whatever she writes next.
