The Smell of Other People’s Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is definitely one of my favourite reads of the year so far. Set in Alaska in 1970, it follows four characters with interconnecting storylines that become more and more entangled with each chapter. It’s an incredibly atmospheric book with a strong sense of time and place. I loved how the little threads of the story gradually tie together so that, near the end, there are these lovely moments of revelation where everything clicks into place. I won’t say too much more because I don’t want to spoil it. It’s a brilliant book with a satisfying ending that I’ll be recommending it to everyone.
