Elle is a fifty year old wife and mother of three. Every summer, she and her family stay at "The Paper Palace" - their family home she has visited every summer of her life. This summer, she and her best friend Jonas have sex in the bushes behind their house while their spouses are inside chatting away.
Over the next 24 hours, Elle will decide whether to stay with her husband Peter and the life she has made with him, or Jonas, her childhood love who knows all of her secrets.
The book follows Elle and fills in all these gaps in her story, helping you see why she makes some of the choices she does. Some parts of the book are hard to swallow - there is rape, incest, and plenty of abandonment. It wasn't my favorite read but I didn't hate it. I enjoyed the writing and I enjoyed seeing how Elle came to her decisions.
