Gabriel is in love with his wife. He loves their life together in a small coastal town in France. He's happy with his job as a banker. But in one moment, one phone call, the structure of his life falls to pieces. Told from multiple viewpoints, this book explores not only what happens next to Gabriel but the choices he makes and the ways he copes with what he's lost.
Meh. I can't even write a summary without giving things away but truth is that while it was readable enough, I just did not believe the "twist." It required too much suspending of my disbelief. It's a "thriller," I guess, but it ended very quickly (too quickly for me) and I finished feeling blah. The writing is bland but not horrible and I never wanted to give it up I just...meh. Maybe I should've.
