Description

Through the richly intertwined narratives of two women from different generations, Ashley Hay, known for her elegant prose, which draws warm and textured portraits as it celebrates the web of human stories weaves an intricate, bighearted tale of the many small decisions-the invisible moments-that come to make a life. When Elsie Gormley falls and is forced to leave her Brisbane home of sixty-two years, Lucy Kiss and her family move in, eager to make the house their own. Still, Lucy can't help but feel that she's unwittingly stumbled into an entirely new life-new house, new city, new baby-and she struggles to navigate the journey from adventurous lover to young parent. In her nearby nursing facility, Elsie traces the years she spent in her beloved house, where she too transformed from a naïve newlywed into a wife and mother, and eventually, a widow. Gradually, the boundary between present and past becomes more porous for her, and for Lucy-because the house has secrets of its own, and its rooms seem to share with Lucy memories from Elsie's life. Luminous and deeply affecting, A Hundred Small Lessons is a lyrically written portrayal of what it means to be human, and how a place can transform who we are. It's about a house that becomes much more than a home, and the shifting identities of mother and daughter; father and son. Above all else, this is a story of the surprising and miraculous ways that our lives intersect with those who have come before us, and those who follow.
