Review

Rating: 7

The pivotal event where the main character, Cassandra, has a vision of a hanged girl while dowsing for water occurs between flashbacks to her past. The narrative continues as parts of her past illuminate the present and the two draw together to a suspenseful conclusion. As an unreliable narrator, the story never veers too far from objectivity while also using it as a device about how we perceive and understand the world, particularly in contrast to Cassandra’s father who is slowly losing his memory due to Alzheimer’s.
