Swimming Lessons (Hardcover)
If you’re in the mood for a book that will break your heart multiple times, convince you that all human beings are inherently selfish, and destroy your belief in true love, this is the book for you! But don’t worry, the incredible care that was put into telling this story that is realistic to the point of being painful makes up for the time you’ll have to spend repairing your wall after you punch a hole in it.— From Kinsey's Picks

“With Swimming Lessons, Claire Fuller confirms her place as a writer of exceptional insight and warmth. This tale of a marriage, of a family, and especially of children bearing the brunt of the fallout of betrayals and abandonment, pulls you in and refuses to let you emerge from the lives of its characters until the tale is finished. Even then, it takes time to shake the spell the book creates.
A wonderful follow-up to Our Endless Numbered Days, that explores similar themes through an entirely different story, Swimming Lessons will be a great book for fans of Fuller's first novel and will bring her new fans as well.”
