Here is a clip from our review by Amy Neftzger
that will run in our next print issue:
(SUBSCRIBE NOW and don’t miss this issue).

Love is integral to life and this idea is prevalent throughout the novel. In most cases love is a struggle for us as we figure out how to best love our spouses, children, parents, and others. As part of finding his identity, Jacob attempts to learn how to give and receive love. He wrestles with this, just as we all do, and he tries in his imperfect manner to reason out the best way to demonstrate love, knowing that that intent and perception may be two very different things. Eventually he comes to the conclusion that without love each of us will die. However, each of us will also die with love, but not all deaths are equal. Love won’t make anything last longer than it should, but love is essential. We all need it and it impacts the quality of our lives, as well as how we perceive our own deaths.
