The Very Marrow of Our Bones

The Very Marrow of Our Bones: A Novel Paperback – April 3, 2018

I believe I put this book on my wish list to support ECW Press. Then I accidentally bought it.  I am so glad I did though. It is a well written well paced book.

The novel has many mysteries to solve and while it does in an engaging way, it also does it in a realistic way.  Ms. Higdon actually reveals a mystery without fake suspense and build ( answers come in the story when they should). As a reader, I acknowledged it, was surprised the answer came and then saw more book to read.

Ms. Higdon tells this story that lasts for 40 years without a lot of exposition. The action are immediate and the characters are engaging. The secondary characters are not necessarily well explained, but I could tell that they were fleshed out and the author showed only what she had to show.

I definitely rooted for these characters they will live on in my mind. Even at the end of the book, the author is revealing the actions and motivations of the characters that I didn’t even consider.
