Dec 2009 - Book 1 - The Girls

The Girls, by Frederick Busch
A couple dealing with loss of their child...Franny trying to understand what happened and why and growing distance with her husband , Jack who loves his wife very much and hurting for the baby too...tries to find some validation by becoming involved in a teenage murder investigation..
I liked the character of the pyshiatrist who tries to help them , almost like a guardian angel or a watchful mother..
Prose style is very sparse but all characters are etched out very deeply
Rating - 7/10
