Lovely, bittersweet story of a woman who's life has seemed meaningless in her husband's indifference and the gradual awakening of self as he is weakened by illness. I loved the format of writing which combines unsent letters to her daughters and her own thoughts and observations. My big surprise was that the setting of the fictional town of Simplicity "near London" is actually Woodstock where the author grew up. You will recognize familiar streets and places.
Boy does this book hit the Canadian isolation theme on the head! Somewhat bleak but a real interesting story, with some shocking revelations throughout. I enjoyed the book and was happy to have read it.
