Fiction • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Freya Mavor expertly portrays Meredith, a woman who hasn't left her home for three years and is now beginning a journey to rejoin the world. In this heartfelt novel, which also addresses the trauma that caused Meredith to self-isolate, Mavor employs a tone of both normalcy and desperation as she depicts the character's daily routine. It's clear Meredith deals with anxiety. Mavor's voice has a dry, even tone that captures Meredith's desire to simply be alone at home with her cat. Yet there is humor, sadness, and love in her connections with the people in her life. Mavor slowly conveys the shift in Meredith that ultimately leads to hope, compassion, and self-awareness.
