Hunting Houses

Finished July 23
Hunting Houses by Fanny Britt, translated by Susan Ouriou and Christelle Morelli

This novel is set in Montreal with Tessa working as a real estate agent. Tessa loves her husband, Jim, and their three young sons: Philemon, Boris, and Oscar, but finds herself looking for more in her life. When an old boyfriend, Francis, comes into her life through a listing she's taken on, she finds herself tempted to meet him again. Back when they were in a relationship, he was 30 to her 19, and it didn't end well.
As Tessa goes about her life, spending time with friends and family, ferrying her boys to activities, we see her marriage from the inside and see how the "what ifs" of past relationships can live on. This is a story of ordinary life, and how our past is always a part of us.
