Don't worry, all the parts of 'A Distant Shore' are just where they should be! Early on, the non-linear narrative of this engrossing novel threw me for a loop - i actually double checked that my ipod wasn't on "shuffle." Reassured there was no technical glitch on Audible's end, I kept listening and it wasn't long before I was swept away by the unique, satisfying rhythm of the author's prose. Middle aged Dorothy and African immigrant Solomon share an England that neither of them recognizes any longer. The England of years gone by has disappeared but its ghost lingers on in ways both sentimental and disturbing. As their lives brush lightly against each other, we become privy to their secrets, dreams and fears. Narrator Jane Carr disappears into the characters giving each a believable, beautiful voice. Moving forward, backward, and sideways, Phillips weaves intriguing plot points and two disparate protagonists into a compelling story that was difficult to put down!
