Coming Up For Air spans time and continents to give three separate stories pulled together by a common thread. Whimsically, I expected the characters of the stories to meet or link together in some way but the book is not written as a light-hearted fairy tale, it has such depth and intelligence and took me to places of harsh reality, atmosphere and emotion. Each is linked by water, breathing, death and grief.
Sarah Leipciger is a skilful writer and has created an unforgettable story superbly written. If you liked The Light Between Oceans, Once Upon A River and All The Light We Cannot See, you will love Coming Up For Air.
