    The book was slow at first but once I got into it it was worth it

    I had high hopes for a novel by Sharon Solwitz because she has this vibrancy in her prose Her voice is clear sharp biting at the consonants and has character in the words she chooses to craft into succinct sentences The novel began with a brilliant formation of ordinary people living typical lives in a not so typical story Told from the perspectives of the mother Claire and the youngest daughter Hadley the narrative sweeps back and forth There is tension on page on as Claire is pulling up the carpet on the stairs but Hadley's scenes lack momentum Or rather inspiration toward momentum She takes pain killers without explanation She runs off with slight motivation This rotation between perspectives tells the story from different angles but it stalls from digging further into the source of character motivationI have read Solwitz's short stories and I was in love Perhaps I am biased toward Blood and Milk her book of short stories because I feel like I get of a sense of her in each of the characters I can pick out pieces of Solwitz's life in the lives of her characters and it makes it enjoyable
