This story is about Sabrina & her father. There’s a secret about her father and Sabrina does everything she could to uncover it. Highly recommended..
The book follows a daughter whose father has lost his marbles - quite literally! Throughout his life he has collected marbles and each one has a deep connection to his identity. Now that her father is struggling with his memory she goes on a journey to find his lost marble collection and reunite them and the memories they represent to her dad. It is such a brilliant book about identity and memory and how they go hand in hand.
What a beautiful story, It was both poignant, yet full of love. I loved the characters and the family dynamics
The Marble Collector is a novel about identity and about the importance of memories and about how we don't always know the very people we share a home and life with. The story is told from two perspectives from the father's Fergus perspective and from Sabrina.
Overall this is a book about family, loss and memory and I really, really enjoyed it.
