I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Robin Kirman studied philosophy at Yale before receiving her MFA in writing from Columbia, where she also taught for several years. Her curiosity about human psychology has led her to combine work in psychoanalysis with writing fiction.
“The only point in living is to follow your passion.”
Gina is a dancer, up and coming, with promise and talent. She married Duncan after the loss of her mother, and their romance was tumultuous at best. When Gina suffers a terrible brain injury, Duncan is more convinced that they can be happy together.
This was an unconventional love story, filled with chaos and lies. The plot shifts so smoothly that it is twice as shocking and so unexpected.
The characters were both very well developed, with their identities very intertwined, almost uncomfortably.
Both Gina and Duncan had qualities that made them unlikable, though they were drawn together by such a force.
The scenery descriptions were beautiful, and the imagery used was very much a part of the story. I enjoyed the descriptions of Gina and Duncan’s travels, the things they saw, and the places they stayed. It was very well done.
The twist in this story will quite literally slap you in the face and leave you speechless. I did not see it coming, and I did not expect the way things shifted.
Marriage is forever, much like madness.
