Emily Collins has been spending the last 5 years or so working to support herself and her musician husband, while he plays gigs and crashes at friends’ houses. When Emily discovers that he’s been cheating on her (probably for a while), instead of breaking down, she throws him out, and discovers newfound freedom. Perhaps it’s fate, then, when she gets a letter notifying her that her Aunt Frannie has died, and left her Heartshorne, Oklahoma house to Emily.

At the center of the story is Echo Lake, which seems to be the source of all the violence--I'd say the lake itself is a deft and not at all heavy handed stand-in for the town's collective yet still personal subconscious, those motivations we all have but can't bring ourselves to admit to. This speaks to one of the things this novel does best, which is portray rural life, poverty and issues around consent in a nuanced, sympathetic, yet still critical way.

This is a hugely satisfying and promising first... Read more
