Even though the cover states that it is "A Cree Black Novel", Daniel Hecht does share the wealth of story telling with all of the characters, good, bad, and shades in between.
My least favorite was Charmian. She valued her position in society above all else, even her daughter's mental health.
My most favorite character, besides Cree, was Lila. Bless her, she was the bravest of all of them. Terrified and she still needed to confront her ghosts, literally.
A second favorite character is Joyce. Just love her balance of humor and love for Cree and Ed.
I cannot wait to read the next Cree Black Novel and see who all we meet, alive and ghost alike.
