I don’t want to tell the story here. Or give away the plot. That is for later and I am guardedly trying not to give more away than you might find on a book cover. I presume you will not have read the book, and if you are inspired to do so you do not need a precis from me out of context.
It is not a book club discussion here, or even meant as literary criticism, it is just a recommendation and a starting point from which you can make up your own mind.
