Read full description of the books:



Ms. Godshalk is a most frustrating writer. Not only is her plotline opaque and desultory, her use of personal pronouns is confounding. One never knows who the referent is without a lot of work. All of this is worsened by the many exotic words/terms she uses without explanation.
This is sad especially because clearly she has a wonderful feel for the terrain, a feel I wanted to so much to enjoy but which eluded me in the thicket of peculiar vocabulary. I think there is a literary conceit here, a kind of intellectual arrogance, in which the reader is asked to accept the alien clime along with alien narration. Is Ms. Gotshalk sitting on a porch somewhere in Massachusetts enjoying her recondite success with prose no one can easily follow? I'm not sure I would even want to talk to her. I might never understand to what or whom she is referring. Definitely a book I would not recommend despite excellent research and excellent subject matter.
