This book is either a magic oriented self identity exploration or a mental illness fueled fantasy. Larque is a young, middle age mother and wife who looks for her inner self and finds something.
There is a lot of social commentary regarding sexual identity and resultant societal dictated roles. There is minimal action and maximum social spelunking. Larque meets her long lost father, the perpetrator of said loss and the reader meets Larques family and their idiosyncrasies.
This book is probably used in someone's sociology classes or perhaps abberant psychology, hard t make a decision on that.
