The opening paragraphs of this story had me thinking her dearest friend and soul brother was her long lost love, but of course Angelina Kalahari turned the tables and took me on a trip of mystery and suspense. My nerves were on edge reading her late night escapade playing detective in dark buildings.
I can honestly say I hung on every word she wrote, taking me on a journey I can only hope there will be a sequel to. My only complaint is it finished too soon, I wanted more. I do hope the Author will consider writing a Book 2.
I look forward to reading more beautiful stories from Angelina Kalahari, a talented and very interesting lady.
I feel like the main character was someone I 'should' have been able to identify with, but I never really could. She seemed flighty to me, and maybe the intent was to show how the circumstances in her life were causing her to question her current situation, but it was just bizarre. The transitions between what was happening with her best friend James and the other men in her life always caught me off guard.
I think it would have been easier to understand Isabelle if the author had shown the character of her husband through stories of the two of them interacting rather than just Isabelle complaining about him to her friend.
The story takes place in London, England, so there are plenty of references to words & phrases that are not typical to American English. For someone not familiar with these, be aware. I personally read books frequently from English authors and did not struggle with this too much.
By the time women reach "a certain age" the common perception (and myth) is their lives are measured, set, pedantic, comfortably boring, and most definitely asexual. Few books are written about them. Female leads are either young and sexy, or grandmotherly, slightly quirky, dotty, murder-mystery matrons. Vibrant, sensual, independent, smart, questing, growing women in their 50s rarely exist in books or movies
But I know a number of them in real life. I feel like I KNOW the main character, Isabelle, and I admire her for the journey of confusion, self-discovery, love and loss she courageously embarks upon. I want to sit down with her over a glass of wine and listen to her steamy exploits, puzzle with her over the strange twists and turns in her life, yell at her for some of her unwise choices (which, upon further reading don't seem unwise after all), comfort her during the traumas life hands her, and applaud her for her pursuit of a life that is extraordinary.
An unpredictable, compelling, thought-provoking, unsettling, inspiring and fascinating read. Brava, Angelina!
Or that the story is based on real events. So beware: when you turn the last page, you will be faced with the fact that you became a slightly different person.
