Superb!, 7 Feb. 2005
I really enjoyed this book. It tells the story of one woman's life from the beginning through to her death at the end of the twentieth century. As always, Shields draws attention to the differences in attitudes between men and women and it is particularly interesting in this book how the events of the 20th century influenced and changed social relationships. It is a warm, incredibly well written book. I believe it to be Shield's finest.
