Don’t ask me how, I have this new book to read, The Lights in
Others' Houses, and there’s so little I know about the book and the author.
Did any of your read it?

Pages (portuguese version): 384
Plot: Mandorla is the
daughter of a woman full of fantasy. Mary, the mum, works at a property
management company and has a special ability of turning every meeting in a vibrant
group therapy session. When Mary dies in an accident with her motorbike,
residents of Grotta Perfetta Street, 315, discover a letter in which she
announces to her daughter that her father lives in that building. Seeing the
harmony of their families threatened, the residents take an unusual decision:
not to conduct a DNA test and take together the child's education and she every
two years she goes living in different house. Mandorla grows up, obsessed with
discovering the identity of her father and thus to have a normal family, like
everyone else. Who is the father of Mandorla?
I'm not really sure about this book... I'm afraid that it tells another story of another girl trying to find out one member of her family and that's about it. When I read it, after reading the one from Cecelia Ahern
, I'll let you know :)
If you read it already, tell me your opinion.
