Lori Roy has created a literary suspense novel about desperate housewives in a white working-class neighborhood in Detroit in 1957. The story has a tense, ominous feel as the homemakers react to forces affecting their community—closing factories, racial tensions, family secrets—and then face the disappearance of a mentally disabled young woman. Narrator Marguerite Gavin breathes life into the residents of Alder street, giving each a distinct voice and personality. She matches the tone of her narration to the emotional upheavals that are traumatizing the neighborhood. Depicting the characters’ pain and feelings of helplessness, she provides verisimilitude to the people, place, and time period of this richly detailed story.
