I had forgotten what this book was about by the time I got round to reading it, so went in with no expectations. At first, I was totally hooked - what is this woman running away from and why? The concept of leaving one life behind and starting afresh fascinates me, it’s something I’ve tried writing myself although I usually get bored with the process and end up skipping to the reunion scene.
There were a few times I thought about doing this while reading, there were some bits that felt quite drawn out, but I stuck with it and the reward was worthwhile. It’s desperately sad, but of course, it has to be to drive a person to abandon everything they’ve worked so hard for.
Overall a great book, well worth reading, and sticking with despite the occasional meandering paragraph.
