A warm, tender heartbreaking book about a trio of friends, reminiscent of Jules et Jim, and the power of art and love to change daily lives. The Guardian quotes the beginning of the story:
In the prologue to [a:Sarah Winman|4197193|Sarah Winman|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1357479615p2/4197193.jpg]'s third novel, a woman defies her husband at the local community centre when, upon winning a raffle, she chooses as her prize not the whisky her husband desires but a reproduction of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers: “It was her first ever act of defiance. Like cutting off an ear. And she’d made it in public.”
Lovely writing, empathetic characters and a satisfying tale set in Oxford and the South of France amidst the sunflowers. I looked forward to each reading.

Elly and her brother Joe are slightly isolated children: Elly is a loner, and Joe is gay. Elly however has Jenny Penny, and Joe has Charlie. Both lose and then find again these seminally important friends. This is a novel about family, about loss, about violent tragedy and even sexual violence. God is Joe's gift to Elly: a pet rabbit who alleviates her loneliness and becomes her confidante.

In the end, family and a few close friends learn to rely on each other to help them through their final, major crisis, and work through the shadows from their past. A sometimes dark and often poignant and witty book, you'll have it demolished in a couple of sittings.… (mais)
