Set in 1973, Second Sight is the chilling portrait of one American family's complicated and violent life, when violence at home was largely denied. Stoic Gabrielle Bissonette and Valley, her vulnerable sister-in-law, become close despite their differences, and contend with the love and increasing rage of Robert, Gabrielle's brother. A decade later, in journal entries woven through a gripping narrative, Gabrielle the survivor confronts pain and the tragedy of that year, rediscovering her own responsibility, her courage, and ultimately the forgiveness that grants her 'second sight' and an empowered future.
  • Interweaves the experience of a women hunter who is also an adult student trying to complete her degree with a powerful story about family dysfunction and family violence. Gabrielle lives in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, beautifully rendered in Diamond's rich description, in her father's cabin, saving as much money as she can to finish her degree. The hunting scenes, written atypically from a woman's point of view, are honest and realistic -- Diamond obviously has gone hunting. Shortly before Robert, her brother, is due to get out of prison, his jailhouse bride, Valley, shows up on Gabrielle's doorstep. Gabrielle is utterly unprepared for this vegetarian, hippie girl coming into to her life, while also dreading the release of her brother from prison.

    The story is told in two different time periods, one from the Vietnam War era of the early 1970s, and the second from ten years later, looking back. Several threads interweave through the story: Gabrielle's struggle with her final study which is about Ernest Hemingway, a man whose writing she both appreciates and abhors; the mystery of the disappearance years earlier of her mother; her brother's violent and menacing nature: and Gabrielle's unique experience as a woman hunter.

    There is much to admire in this first novel as a page-turner, not the least of which is Diamond's rich storytelling language and voice. This book never got its deserved recognition.
