I read a bunch of reviews of this book prior to reading it myself and wasn t sure whether or not I would enjoy itI was pleasantly surprised to find that I liked this book uite a bit and here s why1 The story was fascinating What would I have done in that situation It was fun to imagine myself as Norah Caroline David or Paul and determine if my actions would mirror theirs or if I would have done things differently 2 The metaphors and imagery that Edwards uses are captivating For example she describes crocuses shouting and a wedge of air coming through an open door The juxtaposition of physical characteristics ascribed to inanimate objects and the fusion of opposites added texture to the storyGoing along with that she used the wind as a metaphor unrest loneliness loss guilt shame it spoke a different language to each of the characters and manifested itself in interesting ways The obsessive compulsive picture taking the drive to make sense of the world the bones the running the travel all of these were terrific physical manifestations of inner turmoil some blatant others subtle reminders of the loss3 Edwards descriptive abilities made it seem that I was in the room with the characters She pointed out the pattern of sunlight cascading through the windows or other mundane details that so many other authors gloss over or ignore because they are too busy telling about events that happen I realize that in some cases this can be construed as dragging boring or slow but Edwards used such beautiful interesting language to describe those things that it made the story come alive for me and I felt like I was a participant observer rather than just an observer4 One of my personal fascinations is tracking and tracing the pivotal points in people s lives that determine who they really are Naturally this book was all about how one seemingly right decision affected dozens of lives How would they have been different if different decision were made The only really bothersome thing was that nobody triumphed over the lossno matter how hard they triedso is this a cautionary tale to always tell the truth To not make decisions based on how you think someone will react but to give them the agency to decide that for themselves I understand how the outcomes of each of the characters happened but also would have liked to have seen some triumph and salvation and perhaps that s what Rosemary and Jack were supposed to be at least for David He couldn t fix his own family so he spent his time fixing others literally and figuratively And I guess ultimately Phoebe and Caroline triumphedI just don t like to believe that suffering a loss reduces us to throwing our lives to the wind I want to think that peace and hope can still be found
