Description - Losing February by Susanna Freymark
Bernie, a divorced mother of three, lives on a hilltop in Byron Bay. She works part-time for the local paper. Bernie has an amicable relationship with her ex-husband and strong female friendships. While writing her first novel, she gets in contact with an old friend from university. Jack is married, has two children, and has never forgotten Bernie. A tortuous, intimate, passionate - yet frustratingly sexless - affair follows, fuelled by hundreds of confessional text messages and emails. When Jack ends the relationship, Bernie is so emotionally lost she seeks solace, via the internet, in a string of increasingly dangerous and twisted sexual encounters. Losing February describes, in sometimes disturbingly graphic detail, what happens when a strong, energetic, capable woman in her early 40s loses her sense of self and mistakes punishment for grief.
