Centering the story in a funeral home is a perfect way to have the setting show the drama and hopelessness of the service providers during the crisis. They were at the very center of the crisis, and you felt great empathy for the characters as it affected the whole family. I loved the book.
There were some places where the ancillary characters meandered around a bit but it was worth it to read.
