Eternaldisturbance | 1 comments I read this book in 2005 probably, it was one of the light paperbacks you buy on a train station but it turned out to be surprisingly good. The book starts with a middle aged woman finding a birth control pill in her teen aged daughter's room. And that same day or may be later she finds a scrap book in her younger daughter's room, which contains newspaper cuttings of a lot of distressing things, I don't remember what. The younger daughter is very sensitive and she joins a n environment group. The woman joins too to support her daughter and finds herself drawn towards the co-ordinator of the group. A complication is that the teen aged daughter is also drawn towards this man. Anyway the man is attracted to the mother and co-incidentally they (man and woman) get to take a trip together. Daughter misunderstands mother and calls her a "slut" or a "whore". Anyway things resolve themselves, the man leaves town and the book ends with the mother getting a postcard from the man with a few lines.
I would love to read more of this author, if only I could remember what the name of the book was!
