This book was chosen by a book club member; I probably would not have read it otherwise.
After a slow start, during which I had to work hard to persist, the book became a page turnet for me.
The subject had either an extraordinary life lived at low key or like many others led an extraordinary life without being overly conscious of it.
I love the language and the fact that there were gaps in the tale. It caused me seemed to reflect on the story of my own life. Some of it is crystal clear and sharply remembered other parts are quite hazy or just not there in my memory.
