We gave it a B+

Set in 1976 Botswana, White Dog Fell From the Sky revolves around the unlikely and uneasy relationship between an American whose marriage is disintegrating and a medical student on the run from South Africa after witnessing a murder. Morse’s writing is lyrical and quite beautiful, with searing descriptions of the dusty earth, unforgiving sun, and stark skies. The inner workings of her main characters’ minds may remain a mystery, but that doesn’t stop you from getting attached to their respective heartaches and plights and rooting for their happiness. B+
