Two sisters vanish from a popular beach in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky with only one witness. As months pass with no progress, their disappearance reverberates throughout the peninsula, unearthing long held mistrusts and prejudices. Julia Phillips gives you not a police procedural but a series of interconnected hopeful, desperate, and at times devastating glimpses into the lives of both native and Russian women in this small pocket of the world. Through their eyes, we come to know Kamchatka, their dreams, their fears, and what keeps them tethered to this harsh land while clues slowly reveal themselves around them.

You'll have to read this novel because there is so much more that I cannot put into words.
