India Bridge’s house is a prison, her life a collection of redundancies. Overnight, her children have turned into willful, frightening creatures and her husband into an unsolvable enigma. When India tries to reach beyond the limitations around her, she begins to realize the scattered truths that hide themselves in fear and solitude.

I am glad I read Mr. Bridge first. This was a good book and well worth the read, but Mr. Bridge was a truly exceptional read. Connell, in both books, writes masterfully. His insights and delivery are perfection.
Laugh out loud funny at times, with a subtle but pointed humor. Also deep and moving, highly recommend!
