“Dakin’s childhood on the run has all the elements of a great thriller. There are last-minute cross-country escapes, a web of dark family secrets, and a desperately agreed-to vow of silence. But it is ultimately a fable about the power of the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of our lives…”
—The New York Times
