Ngā whakaahuatanga whakarei nā Syndetics:

Jean Harley - wife, mother, lover, dancer - is a shining light in the lives of those who know and love her. But when tragedy strikes, what becomes of the people she leaves behind? Her devoted husband, Stan, is now a single father to their young son, Orion. Her best friends, Neddy and Viv, find their relationship unravelling at the seams. And Charley, the ex-con who caused it all, struggles to reconcile his past crimes with his present mistakes. Life without Jean will take some getting used to, but her indelible imprint remains. Jean Harley Was Here is a touching and original exploration of love, relationships, and the ways in which we need each other.

The cover says this is a book to "savour" and I agree. It is delicately written and poetically it delves into the minds of each character left behind, their memories of Jean and the turns their lives take after her death. The effect of their memories of Jean changes the ways some of them live their lives and even affects the person who accidentally ran her over. I am happy to recommend this novel.
