Another subtle and compassionate novel from Seiffert who is able to communicate the thoughts and emotions of inarticulate characters. A minor quibble - the part of the novel with Polish workers did not seem to belong in this book.

While I worried that something terrible might be just around the corner, I put my trust in the author, who gave us so many kind exchanges between family members ... loving, all. And while the characters certainly suffer losses, Seiffert is so skilled: Nothing histrionic or outsized happens here. Just daily live and love. A fine novel.

I read the blurb on the back cover it said it not only is a deeply human story but a powerful insight into the noise of identity.????????????? What does that mean????!!!!???!!!! Anyway I thought it seemed to be a story about a family that didn't express themselves very well. Not a lot of self-awareness. I stayed to the end but once I reached the end it was disappointing and I wished I hadn't stayed with it.
