    PDFEPUB Gerbrand Bakker #216; #216; De Omweg Epub #242; omweg book, De Omweg EpubA panoply of the senses  Pensive reflective and moving  Beautiful  A woman rents a remote greystone farmhouse in Wales  She has left her husband needing time to herself limiting her world making it small  Nature the quiet the colors the sounds of water  A old woman scent hangs in the air is it residual or current?  A painfully shy badger who shows itself only to her  A gaggle of white geese softly clucking disappearing one by one

    PDFEPUB Gerbrand Bakker #216; #216; De Omweg Epub #242; omweg book, De Omweg EpubIt is no surprise that a book about a scholar deeply immersed in the work of Emily Dickinson is also about death The titular ten geese by the end of this book number only four But this book is about deception too and perception love and relationships nature and gardens We pass two months in Wales but every season is accounted for Gerbrand Bakker has created a knotty piece of fine art for us to contemplate We never learn how old she is Agnes or Emily as she liked to be called We know she is probably at the end of child bearing age so desperately had she tried to conceive She is an intellectual writing a dissertation on the poems of Emily Dickinson that poet she must have once admired but grew to resent She is ill We learn that early along with her sense

    PDFEPUB Gerbrand Bakker #216; #216; De Omweg Epub #242; omweg book, De Omweg EpubThis is a quiet book set in Wales with evocative and beautiful prose a book in which I had no clue what I was reading or where it was going Yet the prose kept me reading a few things fell in place the descriptions of the garden the farm and the place she was living was stellar A few things began to fall in place and the reader learns what brought her here and why There are no gasping denouements no active action scenes or bloody body parts just s story about a woman running away from the world in which she was an Emily Dickens Scholar and a married woman Intriguing
