The Door to January is a masterfully crafted thriller, with a slow build that makes you question several timelines at once. Sound confusing? It’s not. In the capable hands of French, the reader is simultaneously thrust into the conflicts—okay, horrors—of the present, recent past and historical past. These timelines are woven into one seamless narrative vine. French’s writing is starkly beautiful and inherently echoes the grounded nature of Mainers. French’s Yankee authenticity sings on every page, in every exchange of dialogue. Beyond the beauty and the brilliance, this book stole my breath—I read the entire second half of the novel with my heart in my throat. Gah! So good.
