5.0 out of 5 stars A glorious read..., 19 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Rain Tree (Hardcover)
..although I have not finished it yet. Perversely I read the last chapters first and found them very moving, insightful and, in a way, celebratory. I hope I have the same commonsense, dignity and calmness when I reach the author's age. I doubt I will have her wisdom and certainly not her experiences. The account of the adjustments that age requires are thoughtful, sensitive and moving - I am just starting the same process and was moved by her account. We also share views on coffins!

I thoroughly enjoyed Mirabel Osler's A Spoon with Every Course. This is very different but has the same elegance and openness of style and charm. You can almost her her voice. So I began with the "present" but I go back now to the beginning and Ford Madox Ford and Stella Bowen and her family life. Can't wait.

I am loving it. I think most readers will and I urge you to try it.

I absolutely agree with the above review I haven't yet finished reading it but Rain Tree is engaging, reflective and importantly very interesting. I can't put it down.
