This is Anna’s story. Anna is a house wife and mother in a foreign land and she keeps trying to find a way to feel at home, she finds herself unable to connect with the parents of her children’s classmates and does not have much more success when she signs up to learn a language with other adults. Anna is really trying to find her place, but it eludes her and she keeps trying wrong things until life forces her to make a choice that may turn out to be the right one even if it is one she would never have chosen. Anna has aspects of so many mothers and wives I could definitely relate to her and sometimes when I pictured a scene in my head it was vivid and real. Anna is a character we can all identify with even if we have never been in shoes close to Anna’s I am willing to be we know someone like her, and her story is beautifully and lyrically told. A great read.
