This beautifully written book is a multi-generational epic. It's full of Latvian folklore, magical thinking, eels and plenty of heartbreak. It's set in the modern era but has the feel of a lost folktale. Ochsner is an Oregon native, but she spent years traveling to and from Latvia to get this story just right.
