  1. Sounds very unique and, with the author having that background, the mental illness aspects probably have a lot of authenticity. Was this one of the ones you came across as part of the Ngaio Marsh awards?


    1. It really is an interesting and different sort of story, FictionFan. I give the author credit for trying a new approach to telling a story. You’re right, too, that Elizabeth’s mental health issues do feel authentic; she’s not presented as a freak, which I did appreciate. And, yes, this was one of the novels I’ve read for the Ngaio Marsh awards. It’s one of the perks of the job, reading all sorts of different novels!

  2. Margot thanks for the intro to another book an author I was previously unaware of. I don’t think I’m the world’s biggest fan of the ‘psychological’ trope, so a pass from me I’m afraid. At least the pile hasn’tr grown!


    1. Well, that’s certainly the good side of reading about books that don’t catch your interest, Col – they don’t add to the TBR! And you’re not alone; not everyone is a fan of books that are focused on psychology.
