by Alan Winnikoff
A heartbreaking novel about a couple going through the process of separation, yet still inextricably linked to each other through their shared history, and their children, one of whom is on the autism spectrum. Beautiful writing that often tugs at your heart strings, and lingers in your mind. Winnikoff’s characters often make you frustrated, but you can’t help rooting for them. This novel captures the difficulty that all couples and families face when they change composition. That feeling that someone you knew deep in your bones is now a stranger. How do you continue to love each other and support each other, even when you don’t live together in the same way you used to—and don’t fully like or understand each other? A well done family drama that left me pondering many thoughts.
