Sleepless Night
Sleepless Night | Margriet de Moor
5 posts | 1 read | 5 to read
A woman gets up in the middle of a wintry night and starts baking a Bundt cake while her lover sleeps upstairs. When it's time for her to take the cake out of the oven, we have read a story of romance and death. The narrator of this novel was widowed years ago and is trying to find new passion. But the memory of her deceased husband and a shameful incident still holds her in its grasp. Why did he do it? Margriet de Moor, the grande dame of Dutch literature, tells a gripping love story about endings and demise, rage and jealousy, knowledge and ambiguity -- and the possibility of new beginnings.

A slim little novel, that author Claire Fuller raved about on instagram & Goodreads... sounds really good... (I‘m ignoring the 0% rating on Litsy because it sounds totally my jam!)😂
