A change in Altitude Book Review

A Change in Altitude
Author: Anita Shreve
pages: 307 pgs
Reading Level: Adult

My stars: 2.5 stars

I had to go with lower star rating due to the fact that the book involved politics. When a newlywed couple move to Kenya, Africa they go thru major and minor experiences. Their lives change completely. It will keep you reading to the end just to know the final out come but if you are not into politics like me you will find it hard to read through those parts of the book.

Synopsis: Margaret and Patrick have been married just a few months when they set off on what they hope will be a great adventure-a year living in Kenya. Margaret quickly realizes there is a great deal she doesn't know about the complex mores of her new home, and about her own husband.

A British couple invites the newlyweds to join on a climbing expedition to Mount Kenya, and they eagerly agree. But during their harrowing ascent, a horrific accident occurs. In the aftermath of the tragedy, Margaret struggles to understand what happened on the mountain and how these events have transformed her and her marriage, perhaps forever.

A Change in Altitude illuminates the inner landscape of a couple, the irrevocable impact of tragedy, and the elusive nature of forgiveness. With stunning language and striking emotional intensity, Anita Shreve transports us to the exotic panoramas of Africa and into the core of our most intimate relationships.
