The Housekeeper by Melanie Wallace, a review from Esquire by Anna Godbersen.
"[L]andscape is one of Wallace's main accomplishments here. The description of the old mill town Dyers Corner, where Jamie's grandparents were from and where she can't help but return, is thick with detail that never lets up. We get a sense of 'the rusted hulks of twisted metal,' under the 'fishbelly sky,' and the 'clutter, the buildings, the trodden trail of spilt slop,' early on, but the landscape keeps coming, bleak and barbarous, until we understand it as a trap."
