Christine Snow, a Chicago therapist, wakes one morning to find her live-in lover gone. At first Chris thinks that Taylor has left in a funk because they fought the night before over a minor flirtation. But too many clues point to another explanation: Either Taylor has left for Morocco and a mysterious woman there, or she has come to harm. Running the emotional gamut from anger to alarm, Christine anxiously tracks the course of Taylor's disappearance, only to discover that her trust in her lover may have been misplaced. Badly shaken, she begins to question her own powers of perception: If she has misread Taylor for so long, perhaps - a therapist's worst fear - she hardly knows her own mind.
Bearing Anshaw's trademark style - witty, hip, with sparkling dialogue and irresistible characters - Seven Moves unveils layers of loss, discovery, and personality in a narrative that is forcefully compelling and full of jazzy spirit.
I've read this book countless times over the years and was thrilled to find it as an audiobook. The narrator does an excellent job with all the nuances of the characters and story line and makes it a lovely listening experience.
The story itself is multi-layered. It is humorous while at the same time has a deeply emotional appeal. It explores all the nooks and crannies of the complexities of intimacy and reveals the various ways it is possible to never really know someone, even when that someone is the person we think we know intimately.
I recommend it highly to those who enjoy books with depth of character and story line. It will make you laugh and cry and think about things you may never have thought about before.
