Comment: Book condition is very good with minor imperfections.() At the age of 25, Hannah Crowe moves from Canada to London, intent (she half-jokes) on curing herself of a Puritan upbringing, and on finding a husband. Only a few months later, she's married to Daniel and living in Camberwell, South London. Together they attempt to pursue their shared desire for a creatively rich, emotionally intense and sexually passionate domestic life, but it soon becomes apparent that this kind of relationship requires more from them than their individual ambitions will allow. In an age where the pursuit of happiness seems the only moral code, what do you do when your life falls short of your dreams? Is there wisdom to be learnt from the sacrifices commitment entails? Or is there something in the notion of compatibility that we tend to overlook? Orders are shipped daily from Toronto using Canada Post.

By A Customer on Oct. 2 2005
Format: Paperback
The cover jacket of this novel talks about what do when your life falls short of your dreams and the sacrifices that commitment requires. Sounds interesting but the reality is that it is a actually 2nd person rant about an egotistical, immature, self-centered woman who for some reason never clues in to her extremely, insenstive, reckless behaviour and never seems to learn from her experiences. Unbelievably, the lead character, Hannah, has her own peculiar sense of semantics exactly like Bill Clinton had when he said "I never had sex with that woman". Hard to believe that a whole novel was written based on this same concept albeit from a female perspective. The writing is neither "Original" nor does it have "unflinching gaze;" Instead it is a whiny, repetitive "me me me" monologue and is an utter waste of time.
