Monogamy: A Novel
Such care was taken with the design of this book from the beautiful cover to the deckle edges, which I was absolutely in love with texturally; I knew this book would be special. Annie and Graham are a wonderful couple who, like many other couples, have their flaws. In this case, it is Graham’s infidelities. The same infidelities which made his first wife, Freida, leave him. But Graham knows his infidelities are wrong and does his best to make things right again and to devote himself to Annie completely. When Annie wakes up one morning to find Graham has passed away in the middle of the night, she is devastated. This book is about her finding herself as a widow, her relationship with Freida, her relationships with her daughter Sarah and stepson Lucas, and how she deals with grief and picking up the pieces of her life.
Monogamy is an exquisite story with beautiful, raw emotions, which the characters share with the reader throughout. There are happy, sad, and funny memories. There are second thoughts about decisions and choices made. I enjoyed Annie’s character because of her strength and loyalty to Graham. I also enjoyed Frieda’s character because although she left him, she never stopped loving Graham and by proxy, she becomes close friends with Annie. This book will tug at your heartstrings and have you reanalyzing your own life and relationships.
