Miriam is twenty-nine: a temp worker, living with a roommate who is no longer a friend, and still trying to find her place in life. She falls in love with Erik after he employs her to clear out his paper-packed home. They are worlds apart: he is forty-five, a successful photographer and artist, and an obsessive hoarder still haunted by the end of his marriage. Miriam has an unsuccessful love life and has just got rid of most of her belongings. Somehow, she and Erik must find a way to reach each other. "This is a simply riveting and unfailingly entertaining read that showcases her genuine flair for a narrative driven fiction populated by deftly crafted and memorable characters. Making Space will prove to be an enduringly popular and appreciated addition to personal reading lists and community library Contemporary General Fiction collections."--MWBR
