This is lyrical writing at its finest breathtaking and beautiful showing us the fullness of a life captured Foreword MagazineFor decades Mercedes Medina has carefully navigated life'. From the cover Elegant cultured Mercedes Medina is nearing 60 and preparing for the imminent death of her husband Patrick An acclaimed cellist twenty five years her senior Patrick approaches the end of his life with gusto but for Mrs Medina the journey is not so simple Finding herself drawn to an impetuous woman nearly half her age she struggles for balance as passion collides with responsibility desire with loyalty lust with love and the present with the future When Patrick dies and the woman Lennie disappears Mrs Medina is left alone facing a future that will not allow her to continue living in the way she has In the hospital at the beginning I used to sit and watch out the window Sometimes I did this for entire days or great parts of them Thus starts the best segment of this novel In hospital where we are told in first person narrative about Mercedes Medina s depression the result of both her husband s death and her lover s disappearance Light coming back has a non linear narrative and in the second and larger segment In love the past is unraveled whereas in the last section In transit the story at the end of the first section goes forward I became uite interested in the book while reading the first section since the prose is uite good and the author managed to piue my interest in Mercedes Medina s past story However the last two parts of the book don t measure up to the first and halfway through the book I became uninterested and had to force myself to read it in order to finish it The third person narrative in the last two parts may have helped to create a certain distance and helped me become completely unmoved by what was happening with the characters But mostly I would say that the problem lies in the characters themselves and the lack of moving forward in terms of the plot Mercedes Medina muses on page 5 of the book about the word dull which she thinks may apply to her Actually that is true I don t think that it is an accident that she is referred throughout the novel as Mrs Medina as if she has no identity of her own and exists only through her husband Patrick However Patrick besides the redeeming uality of being a star classical musician is portrayed mostly as a self centered homophobic bigot He is slowly entering into dementia and dying and a lot of the scenes in the second half of the book revolve around the Medina couple constantly bickering with each other Then there is Lennie who is another non defined shallow character and no wonder Mrs Medina and Lennie have difficulty talking to each other keeping their relationship mostly sexual In the last part Diana probably the most interesting character in the book because she doesn t let herself just drift and has some ideas about what to do with her life is introduced However at the same time the plot enters the realm of complete improbability Ann Wadsworth has clearly some talent but this book hasn t delivered what it promised at the beginning
