Distance is a story of Isobel and her family and their struggle to regain their balance after her husband Leo loses his job, the only one he has ever known and her insistence and long held dream of moving to Australia. Once Leo finds his feet they unite and decide to make the move to the land down under.
The story itself is flawless and so beautifully written, you feel every emotion that each character is feeling. On more than one occasion I found myself crying, laughing and just as frustrated as the characters themselves. Being from Australia it is wonderful to see it from a different perspective. The description is wonderful throughout whether it is about a person, situation or location. The author seems to be able to get right into the heart of every one of her beloved characters and connect them to you in such a way that you can not help but feel for them, even if you think what they are doing or saying is just downright wrong. I have to commend the person/people responsible for the editing, it made the story even more enjoyable.
Nene Davies has me as a fan for life, I look forward to reading her next book with much anticipation. This is definitely a book that should be added to the TBR list.
