Krystal, August 20, 2006 (view all comments by Krystal)
During a dep Minnesota winter, a family's lives are forever changed when Arnold gives in to the darkness and commits suicide. The story is told from altering points of view of 6-year-old Kate, 12-year-old Esau, and Clair, former wife and current mother, who is just trying to make it through. Information is not lost in the changes in narration, but rather more depth is created from the different points of view.
