About the book
An architect and his wife, a writer, move to a remote location, a house on the edge of an old hamlet for which he designed a new village centre. She is hoping to be able to write there and create something extraordinary. But before long the silence and isolation begin to get to her. She becomes more and more absent-minded, withdraws from the world—and then vanishes without a trace, leaving him behind with their small daughter.
Femke Brockhus vividly describes the life of this young couple, one which always had cracks in its foundations. Small Faltering Flights is about being a parent, dealing with loss and the all-too-human yearning to disappear. A book that quietly sweeps you away.
