Alive. Readers who enjoy finely written prose are those most likely to enjoy reading Graham Swift’s novel titled, Mothering Sunday. The descriptive language brings both the setting and emotions to life. One afternoon, Mothering Sunday 1924, changes protagonist Jane Fairchild’s life forever. This short novel explores what it means to be alive and Swift uses romance as the key to that question. Along the way, Swift explores class, gender, memory and sex. I was entertained and delighted from beginning to end.
Rating: Five-star (I love it)
