The New York Times said that [Margaret] Cooley has given us something valuable and rare." I agree with this completely. I was taken in by her characters, especially the dead, spoken of and accounted for by the living narrator and journal entries. I felt especially compelled by Judith, the wife of narrator, Matthias (Matt), who took her own life after a lengthly war with her own mind--a metaphorical war that spawned from the very real WWII.
