Written like a musical fugue with four voices in counterpoint, I enjoyed the beautiful language, narrative structure, and the distinctive voices of characters that I could relate to as they wrestle with grief, aging, identity, and family. Their stories are seen as back-lit by the suicide bombing of three Metro stations and one bus in central London in 2005. With a satisfying, hopeful, but unsentimental ending, I recommend this book to book clubs and readers who enjoyed books like Anthony Doerr’s All the Light You Cannot See.
