This is a book to be read slowly and every sentence savoured. Three lonely people live in an uncaring city, their lives coming together occasionally because of their love for the little park they live around. This is a book about nature and how we interact with it, or not; how even in the city the natural world continues its cycle, largely unnoticed by those who live next to it. It is a book about violence and suspicion, families and community. I loved it.
