This is the book that came with me to my orchestra concert yesterday; I read it while waiting in between our sets :)

What a good book - Tallent is an excellent writer. Though as a warning, because the cover summary doesn't make it clear: child sexual abuse is a major theme of this one, and there are a couple of graphic scenes of it.

I picked this up at today's meetup; thanks!

Later: Very atmospheric writing, which is both good and bad; I felt a strong sense of place, of Turtle's life in the woods - but I also felt the truly horrifying abuse she suffered, and the ways in which it warped her and triggered more broken situations down the line. And I admit that the wrenching hope-spot near the end, where she tries to save a trapped fawn only to have it give up in terror and weakness, made me wonder whether she's ever going to get out of her own trap...
