Narrator Abby Craden is excellent at differentiating the dialogue of the three complicated sisters in Brelinski's debut novel. In 1970, in Idaho, Grace's father sends her and one of her sisters to live in an isolated farmhouse after she comes home from a missionary trip to Mexico believing that she's pregnant with God's child. Craden gives each unique girl her own voice, complementing their characters and their story of struggle with religion and family. Frances's youthful timbre, Jory's angsty tone, and Grace's soft volume serve to differentiate the girls beautifully. She also uses pauses to heighten the pathos in this heartbreaking story.
