The way this is written takes some getting used to. The book revolves around the disappearance of a 13 year old girl in a rural British village. Each chapter is a year that passes, told by way of the cycle of the seasons, countryside and wildlife. Bubbling away underneath is the mess and mundanity of normal people living life. I can‘t describe how relaxing I found this book to read, but at the same time how drawn into the individual stories I was.
