It’s slow moving in plot and so character driven that what world events are taking place outside the bubble of their lives may not even exist.
However, like me, possibly you will thoroughly enjoy the writing and find yourself so drawn to the characters’ quests for identity ( even though the author cleverly conceals this notion from the characters perspective) that you will be very happy in your own bubble of created imagery of a family tied to their feelings of what their home means to them.
What more can I say, READ IT and judge for yourself.
The story didn’t really keep me hooked and I felt like the characters were missing something for me. I just didn’t connect.
