This short (200 page) novel was penned by a practicing GP who brings some of that perspective to her fiction. The book tells the story of women from different generations whose lives intersect. Protagonist Marion is a paid up member of the sandwich generation; her daughter is about to start university while Marion’s mother is feeling some of the effects of aging. Like the author, Marion is a doctor who, through her work, meets Nyaga. Nyaga, who is from Botswana, has moved to Scotland looking for better opportunities. She is homesick and struggling a bit to adjust. These characters will intersect.
I agree with other reviewers that this book and author have great potential. Those who enjoy stories about women’s lives may want to give this one a look.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
