This story follows Cora and her voiceless aunt, Ruth, as they walk from one end of New York to the other. The plot is set up in a dual timeline. We learn about Ruth’s childhood in a group home run by a religious fanatic, and as her past meets the future, the two plot lines intertwine flawlessly. This book is as much a mystery as it is a fantasy. It is the first true Gothic fiction novel that I have read in a long time, and it lives up to the genre.
