One of Laura’s recommendations from ages ago. I’d got completely the wrong idea as to what the novel would be about, but as it turns out I loved it. Trying to hide my end-of-the-story crying on the tube journey from LHR Terminal 5 to St Paul’s wasn’t terribly successful! Yes, it’s that kind of book.
With two of the themes being the aftermath of World War I in small town SW Australia and the emotional fall out of multiple miscarriages it’s a real rollercoaster of a story, and I’m not surprised it’s been turned into a film.
