The Forever Girl

Maturity. Popular serial author Alexander McCall Smith takes a fresh approach in his stand alone novel titled, The Forever Girl. Instead of gradually revealing the lives of a cast of characters in a specific locale, Smith dives deeper into a few characters and places them in different settings around the world. The theme of the novel involves mature love: expressed, conflicted, and unrequited. There’s a weightiness and darkness that permeates this novel, another element quite unlike the rest of Smith’s fiction. I enjoyed reading this novel, and observing the ways in which the characters mature as they gain experience and rethink prior ideas.
