Presenting a powerful story of motherhood and loss, this novel explores the complexities of grief and disconnection—and what it takes to become connected again. Gaelle, a 30-year-old beauty editor for a fashion magazine, she is ambivalent about motherhood, and she sleeps around—not because she does not love her heart-surgeon husband Jason, but because the very fact of love is a terrifying thing. She finds it easier to keep moving, in the heart and the mind, than to stay still and own who she is. A multi-layered story of marriage, this novel employs delicate yet powerful prose that builds to a moving revelation.

About the Author:

Natasha Lester is a tutor in creative writing at Curtin University.

Review:

"Luminous and delicate, clean and alive . . . Lester can write prose of overwhelming beauty and suggestive power . . . this haunting, wise book heralds the arrival of a remarkable Australian talent."  —The Age



"Avoids the danger of simplicity by using the sparse events and characters to crystallise the concern centred on Gaelle."  —Overland literary journal



"Lester [adopts] a richer, more fluid writing style, and weav[es] stories into stories to imbue key events with a strange mythical resonance . . . an enjoyable book that will appeal to female readers."  —Australian Bookseller+Publisher



"Natasha Lester paints a beautiful picture . . . Lester has very carefully carved a multi-faceted heroine you can't help but feel for and love."  —Canning Examiner



"A beautifully written, sensitive book . . . It is at its strongest in the interplay of metaphor and visual imagery; an interplay that leaves the reader with an enduring sense of richness."  —Australian Women Online

Book Description Fremantle Press, Australia, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In my defence I can only put forward this disclaimer: I don t consider myself to be a promiscuous person. Promiscuity implies a degree of carelessness whereas I was very particular about who I slept with. When it comes to love, Gaelle is careful. But when it comes to friendship, her heart betrays her in unexpected ways. Fleeing her life with little more than her clothes, her camera and her cosmetics, Gaelle finds herself washed up in the seaside town of Siesta Park. There she meets thirteen-year-old Selena whose friendship, unlooked for and unwanted, helps Gaelle face the legacy of a childhood overshadowed by a charismatic but unreliable mother.
