Hmm… I’ll double check the sample to see if maybe I’m mistaken. It starts pretty… Innocently. A woman -and her daughter visiting the grandmother before ballet. Daughter forgot her leotard so they return home for it to find her husband who she thought was still away on business. Momentarily happy reunion til the other lady in the washroom comes out. Husband leaves, wife falls apart and daughter goes mute. Then there’s a little back story about the husband having done this before an the wife breaking apart and trying to kill herself. He commits her to an institution. She finds she’s pregnant, she never really attached to her daughter. Didn’t think she knew anything about motherhood. Her daughter gets into an accident and she ends up asking something like “please let me keep her.” an then it gets into the religion part.
The next chapter of the preview introduces a famous atheist character who wants to go to Lourdes and “prove the statue is not crying that it’s really just condensation.” his chapter is basically just filler to introduced you to him and his … Intentions(?) I guess.
After I read the preview I goggles up the book. Appearently the daughter ends up telling her mother she talks to God. A female figure called a guard.
I found the Lourdes comment offensive, though not something I haven’t heard before. I guess I was just curious to know if the rest of the book would be like that or limited to the athiest character.
I read reviews and the blurb she has on her website. I might just skip the book hehe just looking for something not too involved to read . Up until the Ian character and that I found it an easy read.
But certainly checking why the sample was 215. Maybe I had my type in the reader small?
