Goldengrove by Francine Prose

I read this in one sitting - apart from snack breaks! It was mesmerising. A story of a family's loss told through the eyes of a child but retrospectively, so it had purity of insight, wisdom and compassion for the adults' grief.
And by the way what a great surname for an author!
I am actually going to read more of her books - she writes really well.

Rating - I give this 4/5
