By Chella Courington

Adele and Tom: The Portrait of a Marriage is a work of short fiction, exploring the nuances between two very different writers. Tom is an economist, orderly and exacting. Adele is a creative-type, struggling in her own way.

Courington’s lyrical and poetic writing style had be engrosed from the first page. This novella captures a great deal of emotion in only a few short pages. The beautiful prose are perfect for a quiet afternoon read. I recommend retreating with this book and a good cup of tea for an afternoon. You will not be disappointed.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
