An exquisite story of mothers and daughters from the Pulitzer prize-winning author of Olive Kitteridge

Lucy is recovering from an operation in a New York hospital when she wakes to find her estranged mother sitting by her bed. They have not seen one another in years.

Thought provokinh

A book about life and relationships, childhood and the different paths that our lives take whether we want them to or not. I really enjoyed the themes of this book and found the narrative thought provoking. It lost some intensity as the author tried to comment upon the life of the protagonist in relation to the life of the city which, in my opinion, may have been a bridge too far. All in all a great read with lots of subtle parallels to ponder.
