Publisher's Summary

One hot August day, a family drives to a mountain clearing to collect birch wood. Jenny, the mother, is in charge of lopping any small limbs off the logs with a hatchet. Wade, the father, does the stacking. The two daughters, June and May, aged nine and six, drink lemonade, swat away horseflies, bicker and sing snatches of songs as they while away the time. But then something unimaginably shocking happens, an act so extreme it will scatter the family in every different direction.
In a story told from multiple perspectives and in razor-sharp prose, we gradually learn more about this act and the way its violence, love and memory reverberate through the life of every character in Idaho.

Intriguing story

This is a book a little left of centre. So many characters with individual stories - each one is interesting but you are always wondering where they fit in and what makes them important to the overall story.
Unfortunately the narrator has a very annoying habit of a tonal rise at the end of most sentences - so I will avoid purchasing books from this narrator in the future.
