Summary

Along the banks of the Neches River, surrounded by the dense, piney woods of East Texas, where the humidity makes even the mosquitoes go a little soft in the head, there's a pack of liars, thieves, and fools that Mimosa Mabry reluctantly calls family.

After a lifetime spent trying to put the place behind her, the kinfolk have come calling, and they want her home. Against her better judgment, Mo returns but finds the answers she's searching for - the truth about a child named Lucy - are farther from her grasp than ever. Because in deep East Texas, at the mercy of your kin, truth is relative - as enigmatic as a carnival shell game.

And the game is rigged.

A good story... Typical of Maxwell

I enjoyed. Very crazy, dysfunctional family. Almost unbelievable, but not quite. Twists and turns along the way.

Confusing story and painful narration

I've read all of Eliza Maxwell's other books and liked them, but sadly, this one was not up to standard. The story seemed to jump all over the place, and couldn't keep my attention. I fell asleep and missed the last hour and didn't care enough to go back and finish it.

The narrator was a miss for me as well. Every single sentence was over enunciated and over dramatic, even during ordinary parts, which made it difficult to listen to. It was painful at times and also lessened the effect of the actual dramatic moments, because they were narrated with the same tone of voice as the mundane parts.
