I picked up this book because I adored the author’s other book, Our House, so I was keen to read some of her other work.

Breaking free of those expectations is no easy feat, but finding your true self and not letting fear stop you from living is so worth it. Our main man, Charlie, purchases a synthetic human, and when his girlfriend Miranda moves in, they have an interesting relationship that leads to some questionable moral dilemmas. Although this wasn’t the experience in my family, I can acknowledge that there are others with different dynamics that will resonate with this story’s theme and characters. I felt that Rose’s inner monologue about her father pulled me away from the story quite a bit and just wish there was less of that and more of the present story. I’m not sure how to describe this book, although it broaches topics of privilege, heartbreak, race and motherhood, it also is quite an unlikely story in some ways.

It is a compelling story about a young woman in need of some time alone to figure out what she wants from her life. Rose finds herself both lost in Paris, overwhelmed with the adventure she's bit off, but with an ensemble cast to force her out of her comfort zone, maybe she will find herself in Paris as so many of us dream of doing. John Lewis-Stempel's story of a year on his smallholding in the Charente is warm and vivid and beautiful.

It’s set in the 80s, although technology is more advanced than it is now and Britain has just lost the Falklands war.

Rose is tired of having to carry all her family’s expectations on her back and no one caring about her at all.

Both books actually cover some similar topics, in that they both centre around moving out of a home and a big mystery that follows.
