A Review: The Oceanography of the Moon by Glendy Vanderah

When I first started Oceanography of the Moon by Glendy Vanderah I needed to lean on an old rule suggested by my dad when I was a kid. Give it four chapters before I set it down for good. This book had a slow, and confusing start.  I'm glad I stuck it through because by the fourth chapter I was pulled in.


This story features Vaughn, a young author struggling with writer's block after lots of early and quick success.  He travels to Wisconsin and meets a lovely family by chance, and finding a strong connection to one member of that family in particular... Riley. Riley and Vaughn both have troubled pasts that make connection difficult, and Glendy Vanderah beautifully unpacks their trauma making everything that I found confusing at the beginning fit in neatly. 

My thoughts: 

This book left me swooning. It was absolutely perfect for these last few cold winter's nights, bundled up with my dog and a cup of tea. It was very much a relaxing and thoughtful read. This is the first novel of Vanderah's that I've had the pleasure of reading.  She has two other novels that have been highly rated as well and are now on my to-read list.
