Swimming Lesson by Claire Fuller is one of those books I am going to have to re-read again. Not that I didn’t understand just felt like I might be missing something that I didn’t get when I first read it. Reading it was interesting. A young women Ingrid Coleman write and leave letters to her husband about how she really felt about their marriage. She never give the letters to her husband Gil, but leaves them into between books. Ingrid leaves her husband and her two children Nan and Flora after writing her last letter.
Several years later, Gil now old and his two daughter grown up thinks he see his wife at a bookshop. The event at the bookshop leave Gil in bed with his two daughter watching their fragile father. Looking after their father the history of their parents marriage resurfaces. Nan and Flora facing their own hidden lock-up emotions about what happened to their mother.
Great book if you are into family drama and about marriage.
