Milka Sculac Sennett has penned an impressive debut; the minute observations from how life can change from one busy chaotic life to taking up activities simply to fill up the spare hours after work to the sensual delight of a carrot cake in a coffee shop with a sexy young waiter add weight to the underlying sad story. I found myself drawn to the wonderful characters, the friend Lara, her mother Maria, her grandmother nonna Lucija and shared the protagonist's dislike of the boss George and his sidekick Boris.
This is a narrative of one woman's life and such is the depth of the the many layers I think it is one of those special books that will stay with me for a long time.
It is a story which subtly reveals the life of one woman's struggle entwining past and present, different culture and society, asking the eternal question what it would be if we were given different chances and opportunities in life.
We live only one life and the main character had tried to live hers the best she could. My Croatian roots were moved while following the Croatian family story, and my experience of the life in England helped me understand the main character's worries, sadness, disappointment, falling in and out of love.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to be touched by someone's life story.
The detail was such that I could clearly picture the central character's journey through life and how events shaped the person she became. It's a sad story but equally one that as the reader you could imagine to be a true life journey.
An impressive debut novel, which brought a tear to my eye (I'm not the easiest to be convinced by a story!), and I look forward to reading Milka's next novel.
