Heft by Liz Moore
The characters in this book are beautifully drawn and resonate with all their life experiences and issues, with their understanding or lack of, with their compassion and with preternatural wisdom in the case of Kell, Yolanda and Lindsay. Arthur is a delight and has a very big heart, even if it makes him rather uncomfortable at times and in many ways it is this discomfort that makes you understand him, each of the characters has shared experiences, and it is the entwining of these shared experiences that links them so richly to each other and enables the possibility of resolution to be brought into their lives.
Never dull, it was for me a page turner with plenty of humour, it especially brought out to me how the diversity of life experiences can build bridges.
Available from the Library system and soon available here in Trade Paperback.
