New Release by Amanda Prowse–The Coordinates of Loss– Coming–9/25/18
The Coordinates of Loss is a profoundly moving book that takes place on two fronts, England and Bermuda. Rachel was ecstatic about moving to Bermuda with her husband, James, and their son. The couple would have several years of happiness on the Island, and develop, a deep friendship, with their housekeeper, Cee Cee, before a disastrous tragedy would rip their family apart.
Be prepared to suffer from an emotional overload. Each page is dripping with raw emotion. The grief Rachel and James suffer is palpable. Cee Cee becomes much more than just a housekeeper to them. She unselfishly gives of herself and plays a part in the couple’s healing. Rachel feels Cee Cee’s comfort the most, as she reveals to Rachel, her own soul-tearing loss, which occurred years prior.
The author does an incredible job tapping into the mind and hearts of her characters, especially Cee Cee and Rachel’s. The writing in this book is outstanding. I’ll warn you though; the sadness is heartwrenching and overwhelming at times. Keep tissues handy.
Thank you, Lake Union Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy!
