My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Every Seven Years is a short story about Else who had left to become an actress in London returning to her childhood home when her mother passes away from lung cancer. Else had been scheduled to give a speech but can only think of her mother until an old rival gives her a book bringing up all kinds of past torments.

For such a short story Every Seven Years really had a lot packed into it. I enjoyed most of it and couldn’t help but wonder how it would turn out. My only complaint came with Else in the beginning thinking of everyone as being fat. OK, yes she’s an actress and overly thin but that was kind of a turn off to her character when I’m supposed to be feeling sorry for her for the rest of the story. Otherwise an interesting quick read.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
