Unexpected pleasures, 14 Aug 2013
The review I read in the Sunday paper caught my attention, without any idea of the precise subject matter. Having recently had the illness suffered by the main characters I was moved and fascinated by their experience. Being an older person, I was also moved by the message - that love takes many forms and is a comfort when life is uncertain. And that "the comfortable certainty we are all expected to strive for is not a necessary or natural state for the human heart".
