Das Traumbuch

Warm wise and magical the latest novel by the bestselling author of THE LITTLE PARIS BOOKSHOP and THE LITTLE FRENCH BISTRO is an astonishing exploration of the thresholds between life and death Henri Skinner is a hardened ex war reporter on the run from his past On his way to see his son Sam for the first time in years Henri steps into the road without looking and collides with oncoming traffic He is rushed to a nearby hospital where he floats comatose between. A beautifully written book richly metaphorical about hovering in the space between life and death It follows Henri in a coma after an accident and how he tries to interact with his loved ones and they in turn with him Poignant and profound we explore the feelings of loss hope and grief all at onceYet even though I can appreciate the beauty of this book it really wasn t for meMy thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for an honest review
