All these photos were taken by my girlfriend in Lisbon over the course of a week. But it is only when we are quite far into the story that Nina lets us know what she has against Emma.

Nina harbors a secret, obsessive hatred for Emma and when she meets her again after many years she begins a plot of subtle revenge. She has a 17 y/o daughter Sophie by an ex now in America as well as a mother who lives in the country & keeps chickens & teaches pottery making & is drunk all the time.

Harriet Lane’s second novel – like her first – is clever, subtle, cool and compelling. This week the New York–based, Australian-Canadian author is branching out, with her first novel hitting shelves on September 15. It is then obvious why Emma does not even remember Nina.

That passion is felt. All rights reserved. Nina tells her mother about it and her mother goes snooping and they find out that her father has been having affairs. There is absolutely no reason Nina would hate Emma and no reason to suspect that Nina is actually crazy, which she would have to be to blow up this non-event into a reason for a campaign of revenge against Emma some 15 or 20 years later.

This is after readers find out that Nina blames Emma for her father (who she didn't know) for flirting with her when she was a teen. On her own in the city, she begins working at a café while being haunted by the ghosts of her past and of her Indian grandmother. Welcome back.

Personally I didn’t feel deprived tho’ I wonder if the author is setting up a possible sequel.

However, this one slammed me with an "ending" that seems completely beyond the pale - to the point of not even belonging to the same story I just read.

This irritates said author, who then decides that she’ll try to fix up the poems in the book since it’s gonna be published anyway. Harriet Lane’s second novel “Her” is a horribly cruel, creepy little novel that leaves one with a sour aftertaste and a heart full of hatred and disgust for humanity. Emma gushes with gratitude for all the help her sophisticated & worldly new friend offers the harried mum. There was such a sinister thread woven through it that it did hold my interest, but I kept expecting more.

I loved "Gone Girl" and thought "Girl on a Train" was ridiculous to be believed and guessed what was going on around the 50 percent mark. Nina is all condescension & contempt for an old enemy whose life she is contriving to ruin - Emma’s toddler Christopher’s in her sights. We’d love your help.

I was excited when it came in, but I made the mistake of looking at the Goodreads reviews before I started it. There is some inkling that things won't go well for Nina though since it appears that Emma has started to recall her memory of Nina and her father. They still serve cola in elegant long bottles. world. I loved it! But the worst thing by far is the ending. It had me on edge the whole time and when I finally reached the last page.. it did not compensate for all the time I spent reading the book. I hated the ending. Dusk is gathering along the coast, in the coves and quaysides and marinas, where in an hour or so the long strings of coloured bulbs will twinkle and sway; and then it will pass over us-like a visitation: a plague or a blessing....”, “Emma is the engine of this home, the person who propels it forward, keeps everyone fed and clothed and healthy and happy—and yet she’s entirely alone within it, and getting lonelier with every item ticked off her checklist. She has also written for the GUARDIAN, the TELEGRAPH and VOGUE. by Little, Brown and Company. Wow. !” as I turned the final page on my kindle…) so much as the sickening way it ended..

Here's my honest review. Though some parts of it felt deeply important to witness nonetheless. There was such a sinister thread woven through it that it did hold my interest, but I kept expecting more.

I actually was convinced that my kindle download must have stopped in error before downloading the entire book because I thought there is no way the author chose to end the book right there. The glimpse into Emma's claustrophobic motherhood was like seeing a foreign (and terrifying!)
