Contemporary domestic drama and love story
The novel is narrated by Molly and Alex, in two time frames, before and 3 years after Alex's accident, which led to physical and emotional changes.
The reader receives a great deal of insight into both characters and their relationship, but there is a third dark and troubled character, Alex's twin brother, Graeme.
Molly is the strongest and most admirable character in the novel. Her caring, determined and patient character, struggles against all odds to preserve her marriage and help Alex through his challenging recovery.
Other important topics brought up are parenting, sibling rivalry, and friendship.
The conclusion was satisfactory and feel-good, which surprised me because there was a lot of suspense and tension, and I kept expecting a dark twist, which never came.
In spite of the lack of surprising plot twists, the novel had a steady pace and the prose flowed smoothly. I listened to the whole novel over two days, because I was invested in the characters and the storyline.
I'd definitely read more novels by this author.
The narrators did a great job too!
