Tara Fox Hall has written a truly outstanding book. "Lash" is a surprisingly beautiful and emotional tale of heartbreak, loss, revenge and violence. Set in the early 20th century, the book interweaves the issues and prejudices of the time such as class, skin colour and the way women are treated, with an amazing tale of a man who is clearly desperate for love even if he himself doesn’t know it. The paranormal aspect of this book is incredible with a rich lore of the characters. Trystan is a lovable character despite some of the atrocities he commits. The pure love he shows his family and those that he cares for is beautiful, as is his perseverance no matter what struggles life throws at him. This is a truly remarkable book and a definite must read.
