A Drop In the Ocean

A Drop in the Ocean: A Novel - Jenni Ogden

I read this book back in February, courtesy of Netgalley, so it was received free in exchange for an honest review.

 

This book is beautifully written. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for other books by this author.

 

The story is about a woman finding her way after losing her grant as a neuroscientist. She rents a cabin on the Great Barrier Reef for a year.  So it's in part about rediscovering yourself.  This book is also in part a love story, the kind that has a realistic feel to it that rips your heart out with hard choices. 

 

I do recommend the book, but be warned it was more emotional than I expected. Ms. Ogden didn't shy away from the science- it's there and accessible. The author has a background in neuropsychology which drew me to the book. I wanted to see how her analytical mind played around with these common themes. 

 

I recommend the book.
