even better than her first
An utterly charming story about a woman who lost her only love and now spends her life making weighted baby dolls for women who have lost their baby. It flits between the present day and the past, and we slowly piece together her love story, so it feels like the mystery of a person’s life gradually revealed (with a few unexpected turns). It also explores what it was like to be an Irish person in England at the time of the IRA bombings. Kit de Waal, author of My Name is Leon, has produced another memorable story with characters you enjoy spending time with. Highly recommended.
