The Rathbones

The Rathbones - Janice  Clark “Janice Clark’s debut novel is fabulous — in the word’s earlier definitions of ‘suggesting a fable’ and ‘astonishing,’ as well as its modern meaning of ‘terrific’ and ‘awesome.’ The Rathbones is both cleverly crafted and a beguiling read…part fairy tale, part sea yarn (with nods to Melville and Hemingway), part Homeric epic, it is also a story of star-crossed love, spiced with Gothic Poe-like details and a dollop of farce… Mercy’s “sometimes patchy tale,” woven from many fantastical threads, will provide landlubbers many a diverting hour following the fortunes of this salty family.” - The Boston Globe
