Review : The Heart of Henry Quantum by Pepper Harding


The Heart of Henry Quantum by Pepper Harding is the story of three characters and a day in their lives and how they are all interconnected. We meet Henry, a middle age, easily distracted advertising man in an unhappy marriage. Henry is on a mission two days before Christmas to find Chanel No. 5 perfume for his wife, Margaret. 

Daisy, Henry's ex flame whom he had an affair, and their paths collide and the feelings they thought were dead in the water four years earlier, come bubbling back. And Margaret, Henry's wife. Margaret's feeling about their failing marriage and her affair she is currently having. 

We see the self actualization of all three characters and how their lives all intertwine and the feelings and actions of all. It is a different story than what is out right now and I really enjoyed it. The characters are middle age and that is also something that drew me into the book. I would give this book a solid 4 stars
