Unpaved Surfaces – A book you must read

A bittersweet story about love, loss, and the delicacy of family ties.

UNPAVED SURFACES explores the varying degrees of mourning, guilt, and coping mechanisms of an entire family after the loss of a child. Souza delves deep into the psyche of each family member (child, teenager, and adult) a feat in itself, and Souza is flawless. The haunted tone of the prose very much reminded of Joe Hill’s HORNs (minus the occult horror aspects of that book). Overall, a great read that opens up a void in your soul and then slowly stitches it back together.

5/5 stars
