No real character developmen It was difficult for me to finish it because I found it a little tedious. I applaud her character for choosing to finally live the rest of her life how she wants to, living it as if it were her last, but that is about all I could see as positive pertaining to this book. So the seductive elegance enticed me enough to finish the book in a day or two. As for where it was set, I don't feel like I could really get a grasp on it. I guess I just couldn't really get into this book at all listening to these people complain because the waitstaff was slow or something was not exactly as they had asked for. A forty-year-old that drinks, does drugs, has children, spends time with exes, friends, and married lover in hometown. The protagonist, who has recently lost her mother, spends the summer at her childhood home by the sea with her children, her two ex-partners and an assortment of friends.
But she recognizes that this is a temporary situation to ease her sorrow.
This Too Shall Pass
She surrounds herself with those whom she loves, her children, ex-husbands, a married love This novella is as a letter written from a grieving daughter to her recently deceased mother. Not perfect. It was mostly a lot of conversations about how Blanca is now the new matriarch and how is she going to be able to handle it all. Readers also enjoyed.
