Life Drawing, by Robin Black, is a gripping novel about the long term effects and consequences of a marital infidelity. Thanks to an inheritance, Augusta and Owen move to a peaceful rural area. She is a painter and he is a writer. They lead a quiet life in spite of the ever present undercurrent of an affair that occurred and ended years ago. Unexpectedly and slowly their lives change when Alison, a divorcee, moves in next door. As a relationship between the three of them develops, suspense begins to mount. Their lives become intertwined in unexpected ways and no one could have foreseen the shocking events to come.
Exquisite prose, well developed characters and an unforgettable story make this book a memorable reading experience. I recommend reading the novel-it is well worth the reader’s time.
I received this book for free through Library Thing Early Reviewers and I give this review of my own free will.
