Idaho by Emily Ruskovich

Idaho really makes you slow down. The novel is so beautifully written and so descriptive, the story slowly unraveling before the reader. The story is told in multiple perspectives, some of which are seemingly minor characters in the overall story, but who play significant roles in the lives of some of our main characters.

I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect with this book, as this is a debut author and there aren’t very many reviews at this point. The summary of this novel says that “something unimaginably shocking happens, an act so extreme it will scatter the family in every different direction” which, to me, indicated some sort of mystery/suspense so let me give you fair warning: this is not a psychological thriller. It’s an incredibly sad novel about loss, love, forgiveness, burdens and memories.
