*Starred Review* Frankie is an artist in her midtwenties with depressive tendencies and a generally aimless outlook on the world. She decides to move into her late grandmother's cottage to keep an eye on the house, get some fresh air, and hunt for artistic inspiration while the cottage waits for a buyer. Frankie does a few chores and whizzes around the countryside on a refurbished bicycle, generally lost in her own thoughts. Her latest photography project might not win any awards, but it allows her to view the world around her in new and complex ways. Frankie knows that staying at the cottage won't fix everything, but it might inspire her to start fixing things for herself. Author Baume is an Irish native with a blissfully poetic voice perfectly suited to the novel's pastoral setting. Referencing works of art ranging from paint-daubed Impressionists to experimental performance pieces, she helpfully includes an index of cited works. Baume's second novel is a study in contrasts: high art against natural beauty, a mechanical turbine against the rustic Irish landscape, inner turmoil against outward appearances. Fans of Colum McCann and Richard Russo will adore this masterful and meditative novel that doesn't emphasize plot over atmosphere. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
