The Sentimentalists - Johanna Skibsrud I had some reservations while reading the first third of the book, but they mostly went away when I started to read the 2nd section. The writing is almost architectural, and she uses the lake to great effect. What really won me over though was the epilogue which includes a transcript of, what I assume is, her father's testimony at a military trial followed by her notes about the trial. Plus there were really fabulous passages.
