5.0 out of 5 stars Sad and hopeful, 3 Mar 2011
This review is from: The Gingerbread Woman (Paperback)
I've had Jennifer Johnston's early novels on my shelves for years - since they were first published in the early 1970s in fact - but it was this book which set me re-reading those stories, and buying some more recent ones. The plot of The Gingerbread Woman is simple: two people with tragic back-stories meet by chance and, without realising it, set each other on the road to at least partial recovery. The treacheries that cause their separate unhappiness are quite different, but the processes of adjustment which the protagonists have to go through are touchingly similar. The moral is that time is a great - but not complete - healer. A lovely book.
