SO. by Suzanne Heathcote

Astrid is stuck. At thirty two this was not the way her life was meant to look. An artist who no longer makes art, she lives in a tiny apartment with her younger sister and works a dead end job that she hates. When she discovers that the man she left over six years ago has been in a fatal accident, her life suddenly spirals out of control. As Astrid is forced to relive her past relationship, she finds herself having to acknowledge the choices that she’s made, and the effect those choices have had on her present.
