This book deserves literary acclaim and explores many themes of intimacy, motherhood, and living elsewhere.
Charlotte the main character struggles to find meaning after marriage, having children and moving to the other side of the world. It is a journey into darkness, questioning and despair.
Incredibly well written but I could not enjoy it, the subject matter too dark for me. I was hoping for some counterbalance, I had to stop reading it many times to get a grip – I guess that says something about how much it touched me and how well it was written.
