This was a fast read. It was, in large part, about a woman examining her life without wanting to examine her life.
The main character, Nadine, is a foreign correspondent who seems to thrive on blood, gore, and tragedy. She is constantly moving and never letting anyone really get close to her.
Briefly in Mexico, the story is mostly in the Cape Cod and Nantucket area and South Africa. The scenes in South Africa are haunting and heart breaking in many ways.
This is a good read that made me want to keep on reading.
