Er life soar to heights beyond her wildest dreamsThe Guidebook’s missives have remained a constant in Abi’s life a befuddling yet oddly comforting voice through her family’s grief over her brother’s disappearance a move across continents the devastating dissolution of her marriage and the new beginning as a single mother and café owner in SydneyNow two decades after receiving those first pages Abi is invited to an all expenses paid weekend retreat to learn “the truth” about the Guidebook It’. 45The thing is this novel enthralled and surprised me in unexpected ways Gravity Is The Thing love the title is about many things beautifully pulled together in this first adult novel from Jaclyn Moriarty Abigail Sorensen began receiving the Guidebook twenty years prior the year her fifteen year old brother Robert disappeared never to be seen or heard from again Abi's now a thirty six year old single mother of a boy and the part owner of the Happiness Cafe in SydneyHer life revolves around her child and work She gets an opportunity to attend a free retreat organised by the son of the people who had been sending the Guidebook There she meets a mix of people although only a few of them will be chosen to attend a special seminar back in Sydney Is that some kind of pyramid scheme a cultThis novel is about finding your way and moving on when grief heartbreak over a failed marriage and the day to day struggles seem to cage youDespite the above the tone of the novel is very light with some amusing episodes I had a good chuckle at Abi's analysis of many very popular self help books such as The Secret The Celestine Profecy He's Just Not That Into You to name just a few I'm not doing this novel justice so I'll just sum it up by saying that it was surprising intelligent relatable touching uplifting and I loved every minute of the twelve hours plus I spent in its company I hope Jaclyn Moriarty will write novels for grown ups She's got a fan in me A huge shout out to Aimee Horne who was absolutely magnificent So now I've read novels by all the Moriarty sisters who write books three out of five are published writers They're a talented bunch

I thought this book was absolutely delightful I freuently wondered how much of the author was invested in Abigail her main character Surely to be able to write a person whose brain runs around in circles one would have to be a little that way oneself Personally I would love to meet Abi She was intelligent funny caring and original Someone very special Her story was alternately funny and sad and sometimes heartbreaking I admit to tears especially the scene in the hospital when the man I really wanted her to be with turned up to hold her hand What else to say but that I loved the whole book and will be thinking about it for days Jaclyn is one very talented author just like her sisters
