In Entanglement: A Novel we learn that their friendship is fed by shared losses, resulting from their acutely painful family backgrounds. We get a remarkably complete portrait of Daphne and Greta, and why they need each other so much, constructing their own sisterhood family to fill the empty places where family love, trust, and stability should have resided in their hearts.
LOVE AND ENTROPY is a prequel novella, which flashes back to a particularly disturbing incident that happened that first summer when Greta and Daphne knew each other and became inseparable. The word "entropy" in Pryal's title refers to the physical law that disorder tends to increase in the universe; in life, it suggests those times when everything seems to reel out of control and go seriously awry! She uses it to suggest crucial aspects of her characters’ emotional experience. This prequel is short but a complete episode that provides more insight into Greta and Daphne and the roots of their fierce friendship.
*Note*: I thank the author for providing a review copy, in exchange for an honest review.
Entertaining story, great segue in discovering more of two fascinating and mysterious young women and their newly formed tight knit friendship.
