I am absolutely in love with the way Claire has her stories broken up, so that my mind moves through scenes easily. The characters are relatable from the very beginning, at least for me. The nuances of returning to a a home you left purposefully; a home where people have prejudices and assume many things of the people that live there or have lived there?
