- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2011 June #1
Grace is already reeling from the revelation that she cannot have children when a sudden stroke puts her mother into a coma, and her freewheeling younger sister, Susannah, reenters her life. Homeless and about to be deported from the U.S. for working illegally, Susannah offers to be a surrogate mother for Grace. That scheme, which Grace accepts all too readily, sets fire to years of unspoken resentment between the sisters, and the explosion soon engulfs everyone in their lives, from Grace's husband to the sisters' mother, who has been watching them as her body lies in a hospital bed. Stimson weaves a suspenseful tale of unusual emotional complexity and honesty, showing profound sympathy for her flawed yet likable characters while brutally taking them to task for their selfish and manipulative behavior. The novel's bittersweet ending and its suggestion that all that ends well will not necessarily remain well further complements this intense and heartfelt tale of love and hatred between siblings.
