This is a story of a dysfunctional family and marriage. Gil is father to two daughters and is an author but without a best seller in a while. He spends his time now coming through his library searching for letters that his wife has written over the years and he has now found after she left 11 years earlier. His
mind is starting to go as well as he keeps seeing his wife Ingrid (or her ghost) everywhere. After a fall both daughters come home to care for him and try to rebuild a family that has gone astray. Reading the letters it is easy to see that Ingrid was miserable for years and Gil was unavailable and inattentive. Too many years have passed and he is desperate to make things right with her. Their relationship told through the letters is an interesting way to tell the story of guilt, longing and mistrust and how that dribbles down to the daughters and their own relationships.
I love to read good books and share the new books that are available and those that are coming soon
