review By Battersea Bridge

Riends she makes the men she sees Mossy lumbered with a childhood nickname that stuck is never the 'fixed point'; not for her most recent lover Nick Halsey or for the mother whose approval she craves Instead she lives on the edges of things On a whim she takes up an offer to scout for holiday properties in Bulgaria escaping the impendin I found this at the library by searching for a novel set in Bulgaria Well a very small part of this takes part there but much of the story is about Anita not being in Bulgaria There s a gradual uncovering of the tragedy that befell her family and how it and her upbringing by emotionally distant parents have made it very difficult for her to function normallyIt s an interesting book and I wanted to finish it but I can t say I liked it
