In Gilligan's poised debut novel, Kyra is a Cambridge-based architect and professor of architecture who meets Andreas, an opera director, at a friend's Thanksgiving dinner. Both have lost spouses to political turmoil. They are intrigued by each other, falling first into companionship as he persuades her to design sets for his nontraditional production of Tosca, and later into an affair.

Carol Gilligan has always dazzled and moved us with her brilliant mind, visionary wisdom, and compassionate heart. Now she gives us, as well, an irresistible novel about the power of history to hurt us, but the power of love to heal these wounds and redeem us. She is amazing. Catharine R. Stimpson.

An unforgettable novel about love–and the first work of fiction by the author. Carol Gilligan had a big affect on me, years ago, with her book "In A Different Voice. My advice - don't read books by academics who write a novel just to promote their philosophy. The characters, the dialogue and the situations in this book were so contrived

He says to her, I could not believe I would hurt you so terribly by going, and this fascinated me: how an intelligent and sensitive man could not know how his action would affect someone he loved.

Carol Gilligan was raised in a Jewish family in New York City. She was the only child of a lawyer, William Friedman, and nursery school teacher, Mabel Caminez. She attended Walden School, a progressive private school on Manhattan's Upper West Side, played piano and pursued a career in modern dance during her graduate studies. In her book In a Different Voice Gilligan presented her ethics of care theory as an alternative to Lawrence Kohlberg's hierarchal and principled approach to ethics.

Architect designs sets for Tosca and contemplates if trauma is worse imagined or experienced. There is little to recommend this pretentious novel. The inquiries are cursory, characters are shallow stereotypes and the writing style is distractingly poor. "...the driver lacked" the knowledge " of the map of London." The novel is awash with tropes and research that seems more like skimming Google titles than thought or experience.

After finishing this book, I can understand the mixed reviews. Although this book is said to be a love story, I found the love story relationship part of the story boring. The author spent way too much time detailing each person's career. Their jobs certainly were unique, just not very interesting and at times I really struggled to not chuck the book. The storyline that kept me going was the relationship between Kyra and her therapist. I also really enjoyed Kyra's other relationships with her women friends and sister. That part of the book was really great and complex. Those themes were more universal and I could really relate to them.

Explores love after trauma, the limits and potential genius of the therapeutic relationship when it is attuned and responsive, and questions of how to balance autonomy and intimacy.

Carol Gilligan's prose takes my breath away. There were times when I simply stopped reading the story to revel in the language and the images she created. The story fascinated me; I loved Gilligan's depiction of these characters movement through grief and loss to create new an meaningful relationships with themselves and others. I found the descriptions of the architectural premises that the outside spaces influence the internal spaces compelling and felt privileged to be inside the world of these highly intelligent and creative book. I highly recommend this book

This novel is not your typical love story. It is a very academic read, full of references to opera, human psychology, classical music and literature. The framework of love and human relationships is explored and the therapist/patient relationship is challenged in thoughtful ways. I remember Carol Gilligan's name from my studies in graduate school. Her work in gender studies and moral development was groundbreaking. This is not a light read, it will leave you thinking about love, human tradgedy, the architecture of our lives, and the nature of human perserverence long after you put down the book. It is not for everyone, but if you would enjoy examining love at an academic level, you will enjoy Gilligan's unique approach. I found it a page turner and a real gem.

"Kyra" is a gorgeously written, intelligent love story set against a cold New England backdrop. It's complex in the tradition of great novels of that past: It creates ambiance and makes you think. Few authors devote themselves to research and the craft of writing the way Gilligan does. There are many passages sculpted to beauty. The opening salvo, a chess game, is perfectly choreographed and hints at the many layers of thought and meaning contained in the novel and inherent in the complicated relationships that define us as human beings.

This reminded me strangely of the writing of Annie G. Rogers ('A Shining Affliction'). Loose and mysterious, some parts easy to understand and other parts left me thinking wait, did I skip 100 pages by accident? Not my favorite.
This book was a contradiction -- it was well-written, but boring at the same time. This book dealt with some big topics, mostly the loss of loved ones, making it difficult to move on with life. Kyra is dealing with all of these issues and they are affecting her life, still, ten years later.

The book was a slow, thoughtful read, which is probably what made it boring, but there was so much potential to have a really powerful story. Like I said, a contradiction. I had trouble getting through the book, but was kind of intrigued, but bored at the same time.

Carol Gilligan is an exceptional writer, however, I think her writing style might work better in psychology texts rather than novels.
