Published: Knopf - March 24th, 2020

Seemingly disparate characters and situations are linked through their connections to an ultra high end hotel in a remote locale in British Columbia. Abruptly changing life circumstances and opportunities make this a timely and reflective read. Mandel is a wonderful writer; I would also highly recommend her earlier novel, Station Eleven.

Scheduled for public release on June 2, this is the most memorable book I've read in a long time. Identical twin sisters born and raised in a southern black community, choose vastly different paths when they run away together at the age of 16. Questions of racial identity, family, empowerment and more are seamlessly woven throughout this beautiful narrative, and will remain with you long after the last page is turned.
