's review

really liked it

I picked up this book without having paid much attention to the description. I'd heard it was good from several sources, and I liked the title. It's lovely to give in to the allure of a book on first sight.

And it paid off. I don't know what I expected from this book, but it wasn't what I got. It starts off about cops on a beat in New York? That is so not a book I'd normally pick up. Then it's about families in the suburbs? Eh, yeah, I can go with that. But what else was it going for? I had no idea.

Slowly it became more and more about what we lose and what we keep. What we have right in front of us if we'll only see. What time does to us and for us (and to our memories, our wounds). The book, like the unexplained attraction that led me to it, was lovely.
