I read this book in a day out of necessity caused by procrastination, so my view of the book is admittedly a little warped. I enjoyed the information given, but the way it was presented made it more tedious to read in one day than other biographies I've read.

Extraordinary, heartbreaking, infuriating. An immaculately constructed haunted house story.

A fantastic novel that's just as powerful as Petry's best-selling novel The Street, which was the first novel by an African American woman to sell over 1 million copies. A Country Place is set in a small seaside town in Connecticut and focused mainly on white characters.

Review to come.
