Loss. I was overwhelmed by the depth of insight about our human condition while I was reading Emily Ruskovich’s debut novel titled, Idaho. Readers who can tolerate ambiguity from multiple voices and time periods will be rewarded with deep character development and an exploration of loss and suffering. The losses are deep and life altering and the response to loss and suffering must be love in whatever form that takes to provide hope and redemption. In many ways, this is a novel we could expect from an author who has lived a long and full life. What a gift to discover a young writer with wisdom beyond her years and the fine writing skills to offer that wisdom to readers through deeply developed characters and lyrical prose.
