Buy this book if you live in the country; buy this book if you live in a city; we can all learn something about ourselves from this book.
Aside from all that this is a compelling novel that traces the anguish of a widow through her bereavement and the worst nightmare of her life. Yes, it's raw, emotional and brave, but it's not all doom and gloom. At it's heart this is also a story about the bonds of friendship. A masterful debut novel.
