Description:
Paperback.
Hattie is 'a stranger by birth' and not really at home anywhere, least of all among her family. Now, while in Ibiza with the carefree, younger man who has just become her husband, the meaning of her past is becoming clear, its hidden pattern emerging from gray English shadows into the yellow Mediterranean sun.
"'A lucidly written account of various kinds of confusion' and 'a valuable lesson in where to look for freedom.' Anita Brookner 'A romantic yet unsentimental story, intensely evocative of the period, remarkable in its observations of place and character.' Muriel Spark 'This is writing as good as it gets... A beautiful, beautiful novel. Read it twice.' Debra Murphy, Catholic Fiction.net 'A wonderfully idiosyncratic, compressed exploration of identity, vision, and will.' Valerie Sayers, Commonweal Magazine 'Isobel English is a perfectionist, crafting aphoristic sentences as if she were doing an etching' Ed Block, America Magazine 'English's writing is both dead-on and gorgeous.' Benjamin Healey, The Atlantic Monthly 'Exquisite. The New Yorker 'Every Eye provides a wonderful opportunity for American readers to become acquainted with the entrancing voice of a truly original writer.' Merle Rubin, Wall Street Journal".
