Sounds fascinating. I'm reading a book now by a woman whose mother walked away without explanation. How hard can that be? Well, it takes a lifetime to get over it, apparently, if you ever do.


So glad you enjoyed it as much as I did. I believe the title is The Blind Side of the Heart, though - not that it's much better.


Oops. Thanks for the correction Katy.

And its thanks to your enthusiasm for the novel (and for Franck) that I wanted to read this in the first place!

Julia Franck's Novel, Die Mittagsfrau, is one of the best books I have ever read. I am Afrikaans speaking ,living in South Africa, but fortunately I could read the German version! The blind side of the heart is a very sentimental title and not at all descriptive...
