Secrets. In fewer than two hundred pages, Daniel Woodrell provides readers with a gripping story about a catastrophe and the secrets kept about its cause. The Maid’s Version is a tightly written compact novel that moves forward and backward in time, from multiple points of view. Because of Woodrell’s skill readers gradually come to understand the mystery. Most readers are likely to read this novel quickly and then consider reading it a second time. Woodrell’s lyrical prose is worth more than a single glance.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
