I really enjoyed it. It’s full of great characters and lives and states of mind that don’t often get into novels. And it’s really well written, clearly and sometimes beautifully expressed.
The structure interweaves the lives of character who on the face of it have no connection. There are fissures and detours and circles. I found I could just go with it, and enjoy what was without looking for the big overarching journey. A lot of people struggling to make the best of things, figure their lives out in whatever way they could. That is no small thing, to honour that.

I started reading this book and only laid it down to make cups of tea and bites to eat; slept a few hours and read on and encountered a whole range of very different and interesting people till I knew all their stories from themselves.
How did Sonia Paige hook me to her book? She did it very artfully like a spider. She caught me with the Zeitgeist of the 70ties and 90ties and let me see and feel all these characters mainly by dialogues and little film scenes. She drew up tension like Scheherazade in 1001 Arabian Nights.
