Elaine Risley, a painter, returns to Toronto to find herself overwhelmed by her past. Memories of childhood - unbearable betrayals and cruelties - surface relentlessly, forcing her to confront the spectre of Cordelia, once her best friend and tormentor, who has haunted her for forty years.

Review of "Cat's eye" on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

It was difficult for me to get in the story. But once I get in, I have enjoyed it a lot.
It talks about childhood and about getting old. About insecurity and impostor syndrome. The importance of the past in our present selves. About feminism and how to conciliate this with the rest of our life. The author doesn't get to a conclusion, she just show that there are other people struggling with the same problems as you.
