I was rooting for Lane and Cooper too.
I loved every word of this deeply unsettling story. The difficult issue of habitual incest is sensitively handled & made eminently readable by the author's deft & delicate hand. The Roanoke Girls is the kind of book that when you've finished it you have no idea what to read next. Dazzling.
