In St Malo with @TimSpalding, drinking cidre, eating galletes, both of us reading this book. It‘s my second reading and one of my favorite books of the last 10 years. It is why I wanted to see this city. It‘s Tim‘s first time.

BirdsandBelles @LisaCarey I just picked this book up at my local used book store. I‘m glad to see you‘ve enjoyed it more than once! ☺️ 3mo

EveMichele I loved this one, especially as a Floridian. I had the pleasure of hearing the author speak at the Gainesville library (her home town). Such a delight. 6mo

Shark phobias, misophonia, and husbands who stay with you when the walls breathe. These are a few of my favorite things.

I almost read this to our son, but now I'm glad I didn't. Too scary and violent but the sort of epic magical tale he'd go for. #YAresearch @TimSpalding

I thought the main character had been raped, but it turned out she had killed someone and I am SO relieved. Does that make me a monster?

I've decided to get an imaginary Maggie O'Farrell PhD with a minor in Hilary Mantel. #authorobsession

LisaCarey One of the most accurate portrayals I have ever read of the strange and beautiful limbo of mothering an infant. 2y

One wonders why the Guardian reviewer is so ashamed of passion.

TimSpalding Manchester is not exactly passion-central. 2y

Since three things I've read recently have mentioned this book, I had to find out what all the fuss was.
