This was another surprising, quirky read. Of course not unreal as who are we to say that this is real and that is not. At the beginning I thought it would be a story of a couple, husband dies unexpectedly in an accident and of course there is the wicked mother in law and so forth. But no it does not even begin like this.
The trouble with this review is that the moment you say very much you spoil the whole novel for everyone else. Lets say it is a chance of a second chance, sometimes a thing we do not always get to right a wrong, to set things straight. Also, when you do get that second chance you should grab it right away as there may not be a third one.
A story set in the world of publishing for Emily and how things turn out to be manageable and life turns out to be more positive than it did at the beginning.
It is a totally unexpected, strange way how life turns out for Emily after her husband's death. I was not totally put off by it - let us just say cultural influences from birth and keep it at that. I think I have been mysterious enough for now.
