This one is an unconventional love story. Jude is a twentysomething who lives in Canada. The story opens when she's flying across the Atlantic to be with her dying mother. She meets a flight attendant, Sile, a (female) half-Indian, half-British fortysomething. Although Sile is in a relationship, and they live so far away from each other, the two click. Emma Donoghue handles both the subject matter and her prose with a deft touch. I enjoyed her short story collection, Touchy Subjects, as well. Read this one if you're open to new types of relationships and enjoy well-written, literary novels.
