A story of life, love, loss and grief along with unexpected kindness. A beautiful, whimsical story viewing the world in a rare warm slanted manner.
The three protagonists are well drawn, Millie, Karl and Agatha. All three find themselves fastened through grief and loss, their individual personalities, vices causing endless hilarious situations.
Davis possesses a writing style of less is more, scant on pages but heavy in meaning and depth. Simply delightful to read, I cried at times, other times I was snickering out loud. Davis inserts humor with precision timing in well measured doses. She demonstrates her grasp of her talent with originality, quite a gem in both characters and narrative. I understand why this novel is generating such accolades, fabulous story, endearing characters, worth your time with certainty.
