Sunday's on the Phone to Monday
"The taste of the book slept on her palate." ~ pg. 66
The once romantic bohemian couple, Claudio and Mathilde Simone, are now domesticated in New York raising three daughters and running a struggling vinyl record store. Claudio's family is Mathilde's family and vice versa. Over the years, their family bonds are tested as they face mental illness, physical illness, true origins and secrets.
Sunday's on the Phone to Monday is meant to be a family love story. Readers will see the same ties that bond a family together may tear a family apart as well. Written in an odd lyrical style, I could not get into this novel. I tried, put it down a couple times, tried again and finally pushed through. However, I should have implemented my 50-Page Rule.
Pass on it, bookhearts.
