Rawson’s writing is a highlight of this reading experience. It is simultaneously gripping and calming within the circumstances of the narrative. The choice of Alice’s perspective was entirely correct, and I found her a relatable protagonist alongside the intriguing role memory plays. I also appreciated Rawson’s inclusion of academics and Alice finding a path after a significant disruption to her life. Despite vital gaps in her knowledge, Alice has a mind of her own crafted and delivered intricately by Rawson to great effect.
