A Hundred Small Lessons
A NovelBook - 2017
When Elsie Gormley leaves the Brisbane house in which she has lived for more than sixty years, Lucy Kiss and her family move in, eager to establish their new life. As Lucy and her husband Ben navigate their transformation from adventurous lovers to new parents, they take comfort in memories of their vibrant past while unearthing their future selves. But the house has secrets of its own, and the rooms seem to share recollections of Elsie's life with Lucy. In her nearby nursing home, Elsie traces the span of her life: moments she can't bear to let go and places to which she dreams of returning. As the boundary between present and past becomes increasingly porous, two families' stories intersect in sudden and unexpected ways.
