Desert Flowers - Paul Pen, Simon Bruni

Wow, what a secret this family is hiding!

The story starts out with the day to day life of Rose and Elmer and their four daughters all named after flowers. They seem to be a normal family other than the fact they live in the middle of nowhere. 

When a stranger happens upon their land one day, they treat him with kindness and allow him to spend the night. His ever increasing questions, however, have them considering their choice. Was it a mistake to let the stranger into their household?

Oh yeah, this secret was a jaw dropping one. I did not see it coming, at all.

A thrilling read that I sped through, especially towards the end.
