Misha Just finished reading this in tears. Two stories--one from the 50s and 60s and one now--begin to converge in surprising ways. You can kind of see it coming, but it is still so clever and so emotional when it finally falls into place. Lovely writing, memorable characters. Will totally buy this in paperback--although the hardcover is lovely.

Amy LOVED this one! Cinematic in writing style and am Maggie O'Farrell's newest super fan. Amazing!
