As many of you know one of my New Year s resolutions was to read books outside my comfort zone I do read a lot of women s fiction but I often pass on books that have anything to do with pregnancy loss or infertilityNot necessarily because it s a sensitive subject but because I often find that it s incredibly heavy and when I read I want something happy This book caught me a little unaware when it came to its subject matter but that was mostly my faultThis cover looks so happy and colorful Just looking at this cover made me think spring I have also seen a lot of hype for this book on my social media and mainly my Facebook group Bloom Tall Poppy Writers This author is a Tall Poppy Writer and when I saw this book up for review I eagerly jumped at it for these two reasons I didn t really know what it was about just that I wanted to read itHad I actually read the description I probably would have passed but I didn t and that was a stoke of luck This is an incredible book Beautiful and well written don t even begin to describe how wonderful this book is But forewarning this book is heavy and does discuss difficult subject matter that might be triggers for some such as pregnancy loss and infertility But this book takes this difficult subject matter and creates a stunning story of the human spiritOne of the things that really stood out to me was how well Gloss contrasted her two main female characters There is Nell who wants nothing than to have a baby and then you have Betsy on the opposite end of the spectrum who never wanted children I thought this was such a powerful way to highlight similarities and flaws within the charactersEven though this was an emotional and heavy story I loved watching the healing that took place throughout the story There was part of me that was overwhelmed by the story but another part that just couldn t put it down The author should be proud of her ability to take a sensitive subject and make it enjoyable and beautifulThis is most definitely a story about grief loss and how to move on I have seen a number of other reviewers comment on how the themes of the book worked so well together and I would completely agree It s interesting to see how some people process grief and I was completely sucked into this story and cycle of grief and moving on The ending is a little ambiguous but I think it works for this kind of storyI haven t read anything by Gloss before but I was very moved by this book and enjoyed it so much I am looking forward to reading by her She is one to watchSee my full review here

I loved Vintage and gave it fours stars when I read it back in 2014 and kept my eye out to see when Susan Gloss would publish another book Unfortunately I found this follow up to Vintage to be disappointing This book doesn t do a good job of linking all of the stories to each other Artists living together in a colony didn t help link things since they were all going through so many things and felt like roommates that passed in the night It didn t help that one of the POVs we get is from a character who has passed away I just felt jumbled the entire time I read this and ended up disliking most of the characters too The Curiosities follows Nell Parker who after dealing with losing her baby in the second trimester throws herself into fertility treatments leaving her and her husband without his knowledge deeply in debt Nell finds a job hoping that she can start chipping away at their debt She ends up getting a job as a director of a new artist s retreat For readers who read Vintage we know that the character that did this was Betsy Nell ends up focusing on her new artists that are staying at the mansion turned colony The other characters are Paige young and self absorbed Annie older and self absorbed and Odin harboring romantic feelings towards Nell Nell suffered a devastating loss and I thought the one scene we get to show her and her husband holding their daughter as she dies was heartbreaking If we had gotten of that maybe I would have liked Nell She lies to her husband and seems to be entertaining thoughts about Odin that name you guys Her husband Josh felt present to me as a character and I wish we had gotten some POVs with him as wellAnnie was a jerk I hated her whole story line Her studying addiction series sounded pretentious as hell The fallout from it seemed like an after thought to other characters though How no one went off on her is bafflingPaige was boring She meets a guy she likes him and then runs away from it Ho humOdin was just there I found myself skimming his chapters The writing wasn t as engaging as it was in Vintage Gloss does the same thing here she did with calling out who is speaking by chapter and including some information on art while doing that In Vintage she included description of clothes hats etc and when they were first bought and sold The flow was awful in this one Probably because I found myself only really caring about Betsy s POV chapters I wish that Gloss had included from the characters she introduced us to in Vintage We only see a brief scene that includes Violet The setting of Madison doesn t get a lot of play in this one unfortunately We have Paige going to college and there s a little bit here and there However most of the book takes place in Betsy s old mansion now turned colony We hear a lot about how beautiful it is and the art work but I couldn t picture it very well which was a shame The ending leaves things on a slightly hopeful note for Nell I just didn t much care by the time the end came about what becomes of the other characters I tend to only talk about price when I am disappointed in a book and this costing 1499 was too much Especially for a follow up The last book was 1199 and I recall thinking that was too high Considering how lackluster this was I am going to just pass on any books from Gloss unless I can borrow from the library

Grief makes for powerful stories because it is so personal Even when two people lose the same loved one their experiences are not the same Perhaps it is the finality of death that makes it so we grieve for a future that like all futures is wholly personal and because of death forever lost How we move forward after losing someone says so much about who we are and who we might become In The Curiosities Nell s response to her late miscarriage is complex Her desire for a child consumes her and leads her to hide from her husband the vast sums she has borrowed in their pursuit of parenthood But her financial straits also lead her to a job as manager of a nascent artist s colony and it is through this work Nell must find her future one way or anotherGloss weaves Nell s story with that of Betsy Barrett the deceased arts patron who founded the colony Betsy s life lived without apology on her own terms is a clever counterpoint to Nell s struggles Gloss also uses Betsy s narrative to frame the work of the three artists in the colony each of whom present challenges for Nell each other and themselves As a reader I loved the structure of the book As a writer I admired Gloss s skill in pulling it all together The Curiosities is full of gorgeous perceptive descriptions of art and its creation you will feel the angst triumph and joy And I m a tough old bird but Nell s story brought me to tears darn it Wonderfully written with memorable characters and deep emotional insights it was an absorbing satisfying read with a perfect ending
