charming intimate refreshing
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It alternates between one woman's life and situation in rural canada and her sister's in New York City. I found the interplay of the landscapes and environments invigorating; it allowed one to experience both worlds through the stories of the women. I found the juxtaposition of the two sisters' attitudes and personalities refreshing and came to care very much about both characters and what happened to them. The auther gives a good believable feel for the texture of these women's inner and outer lives. Not a "feelgood" book, but entertaining, and one that leaves one wiser and touched. Highly recommended. I'd like to hear more by this author. Very good narrator.

A Most Enjoyable Listen
I enjoyed this book very much, it was very touching and well told. The readers did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. I am not sure that it is a story that men would appreciate as much as women, but I would very confidently reccomend it to any of my women friends. The format of the book is quite effective.
