The Dutch House
“This is a wonderful story - well written, excellent character development, and interesting. A story of redemption for siblings. This novel hits an emotional chord on many levels - personal choice, the importance of being present in your everyday life, and letting others make life choices for you instead of you making them for yourself. The novel reinforces the importance of being engaged throughout our life not sleepwalking through it because that is easier. The Dutch House makes one look at your own life and wonders why you made the choices you did and how things could be drastically different with just a small twist of fate.”Megan, The Willow Bookstore

“The novel opens with Martin being questioned in a police station. We soon find out that something happened at his upper-class best friend Ben’s fortieth birthday party, and as the book goes on we follow the trajectory of the party and look back over Martin’s life, providing the context and background to help us understand the significance of the events. The writing is gorgeous, I enjoyed the scenes at Cambridge, and it has some searing commentary on the British establishment.”Claire, East City Bookshop
