8 out of 10

I'd never heard of this author before. It turns out she has a tragic story. But her writing is wonderful, and I'm sure it's even better in the original French.

Fire in the Blood is a forlorn, pondering book which oozes a sense of loss throughout. It is only towards the end that the reader fully understands what this loss is. But the novel is so short and evocatively written that I didn't find it particularly depressing. The desire to keep turning pages thoroughout never wavered.
