Planned for This Week:
The Space Between Before and After, by Jean Reynolds Page, sounds compelling. On Amazon:
The Hand That First Held Mine, by Maggie O'Farrell, is an exploration of motherhood, the artist's life, and all that these experiences entail.
On Amazon, we read:
In the thrilling, underground world of bohemian post-war London, Lexie Sinclair is making an extraordinary life for herself. Taken up by magazine editor Innes Kent, she learns to be a reporter, to know art and artists, to embrace her life fully and with a deep love at the center of it.
Later, in present-day London, a young painter named Elina dizzily navigates the first weeks of motherhood. Her boyfriend, Ted, traumatized by nearly losing her in labor, begins to recover lost memories. He cannot place them. But as they become more disconcerting and happen more frequently, we discover that something connects these two stories--these two women--something that becomes all the more heartbreaking and beautiful as they all hurtle toward its revelation.
A stunning portrait of motherhood and the artist's life in all their terror and glory, Maggie O'Farrell's newest novel is a gorgeous inquiry into the ways we make and unmake our lives, who we know ourselves to be, and how even our most accidental legacies connect us.This week, I'm trying to be realistic and not pile too many on my stack, since I haven't finished everything from last week! There are always more books in case I get through them!
What books are awaiting you? Hope you'll stop by and share.
