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.
