About the Author

Susan Richards Shreve's published novels include A Student of Living Things and Warm Springs. She has worked as a Professor of English at George Mason University and was previously Co-Chair and President of the PEN/Faulkner Foundation. She has received several grants for fiction writing, including a Guggenheim fellowship and a National Endowment for the Arts award.


Shreve creates a spooky atmosphere with stormy weather, eerie parallels between past and present, and at least one threateningly crazy woman. Even spookier is the backdrop of 20th-century racism, anti-Semitism, and anti-immigration feeling that are all too familiar today.
Shreve combines elements of a classic mystery novel with a contemporary psychological thriller to create a story whose surface simplicity conceals depths of emotion.... A story whose journey is as rewarding as its destination.--Harvey Freedenberg
[A] mythic journey of self-discovery, held aloft by Shreve's silken prose.--Marilyn Stasio
A compelling, atmospheric family drama.
A tightly written family drama that still manages to pack in deeper points about racism, memory, and time.--Elizabeth Sile
One of [Shreve's] very best books.--Elizabeth Strout, bestselling author of Olive, Again
Violent weather, inexperienced campers and the disappearance of a child make this a potent family drama.--Elfrieda Abbe
With a keen sense of place and pacing, Shreve weaves a subtle and unrelenting pattern of malevolence in this portrait of a woman burdened by the sins of her father and sustained by her unshakable belief in his innocence.
