What a pleasant surprise! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. She did a great job weaving the past and present together, and really brought out the best and worst of humans. I hope this is the first of many novels for her!
I had a little trouble shifting between the past and the present initially, partly because I wanted to know what was going to happen next with whichever story I was currently reading, and I felt annoyed when the next page took me to the other time period. But I got over that pretty fast. Thalasinos' writing drew me in: her descriptions, the language and the stories themselves, kept me reading late into the night. I wanted to know what happened next; I HAD to know what happened next. Jeaantaa and Rosalie are both trapped in the circumstances of their lives. How they confront those circumstances differs, but both show great courage to make the changes necessary, and for both, the bonds with the huskies in their lives are extremely important. An excellent read!
