Haunting, intense, & dark. The writing is strong and I thought the ending was very well done.

Haunting and spare, this gorgeously written novel explores deeply the many threads that make up a human life. With constantly shifting perspectives and the slow reveal of the stories of our main characters, all of which reside or work within a crumbling prison, the reader is treated to what makes a small flame of hope in even the most horrible circumstances and people.
