Chris Halvorsen, a Midwesterner of Norwegian descent and evangelical Lutheran upbringing, has many bittersweet memories. The eventful journey portrayed in Olsens auspicious debut novel takes her from childhood innocence in the Minnesota farm country to an academic career on Long Island, where her somewhat solitary, often painful existence on the North Shore is rejuvenated by semiannual homecomings. Along the way, one sensitive womans isolation and failure to sustain meaningful relationships are vividly, beautifully evoked.
