From the book exchange, Black Cat Hostel, Asuncion, mainly for the connection to Brazil and Darwin.
Holly, artist and mother of 2, moves with her eco warrior husband to Rio. She lives in a house near the favela and tries to incorporate herself in the life there through her fellow artist, Tania. The arrival of Jay, an American composer and musician, pushes at the cracks appearing in her marriage, especially as Todd seems more concerned with the rainforest and Jay is younger and more attentive.
Through his work, Todd stumbles upon evidence of an uncontacted tribe who have attacted prospectors encroaching on their territory. This discovery sets the family on a a course that no one could have predicted.
The book has been well researched and includes important, and very current, topics, but I found a couple of plot twists to be affected, as if the author was more concerned with the ending than how she got there. This made parts of the book feel laboured and others rushed.
What I did like were the fantasies that Holly had whilst trying to paint Darwin and his travels, they were the most vivid parts of the book. ( )
