I can't remember where I saw it now, but I read an interesting guest post where this author talks about the evolution of her books covers and what she thought about them.


Somehow, I don't find the theme of this novel very interesting.


I thought I would not be interested in this book because of the seemingly mundane topic and the death of a child - but I just finished it and loved it. Her writing seems effortless and it is a pleasure to read. Her themes are substantive, her characters are meatier than you would expect - the cover and the synopsis make you think this will be a lightweight book, when in fact it is well-written and smooth. Thanks for the recommendation!
