The Dutch House is a strange, large house where Danny and his sister, Maeve grew up. But after their mother left, their father remarried and they were displaced by this new family. They grow and find their places in the world, seeking home and some kinds of revenge.
I’m not sure if it’s set in a similar world, but this reminded me a lot in feel to one of my favourite books, The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I found it kind of fascinating and frustrating – that feeling that children should be valued and protected and when this doesn’t happen, it can be confusing as to why. Especially when told through an unreliable narrator.
