I loved this book. Beautiful. Lyrical. The writing was stunning and so so immersive. I loved hearing the story of the residents of Victoria Park and I loved how it felt like lots of short stories and I adored how they all intertwined with each other.

I'm not sure what I was expecting from this story but I felt so warm in spite of the difficult subjects that came up. The subtle character development was perfect and this book felt so unique. Some of it I connected with more than other parts, but that didn't matter. Everyone had a story to be told and I wanted to hear it.

The whole book was deeply moving and I was so emotionally invested in it. Although this is a debut novel, it read like it had been written by a well seasoned author who knew exactly what they were doing. I could not recommend this book more. It didn't disappoint and I'm so glad I got the opportunity to read it.
