The book is exemplary in so many respects: for the keenness of its informed historical imagination, an inventive structure in two periods separated by 80 years, for conveying a vivid sense of place, managing storytelling that is both intimate and epic with the invented story as involving and moving as the well-retold historical tale of injustice. It’s a mystery; it’s a love story; it’s a family story; it’s a young person’s story and an old one’s too. Romance, arson, murder, Plymouth, Boston, economic history, political intrigue, real-estate shenanigans. Points of view in great variety, from children to aging widows, young college instructors to Ghanaian immigrants. It’s an ethically sensitive story that slights neither cynicism nor idealism. And it’s so well written – prose, but prose from a poet. — Robert Wexelblatt
