After ten years together, including some difficult times, Adam and Eva are still as in love as they were when they told each other every day that they loved each other every day more.
All-round adorable Adam - adopted, mixed-race, with a deep social conscience that he shares with his wife - claims to have no issues other than having no issues. Raised by remarkable parents, he has grown up happy and grounded, uninterested in his "other parents" or in why they might have had to give him up.
This elegant and humorous tale captures the dramas, triumphs, shortcomings and foibles of humanity from the perspective of Adam and Eva, who after ten years of marriage still love each other "every day more". It brings together beautifully the sadness and laughter that make up our lives.
This book has the two things I admire the most. Beautiful turn of phrase, and characters that stay with you long after you're done with the book. When you catch yourself thinking of a character, wondering what news.. and then realising they were fictional, that's a well written book. I'm looking forward to reading more from the author.
