5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating 18 Aug. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book sat alone on the library shelf, amidst books of thrillers and mysteries. I rescued it, entranced by the title.
From page one, Berlie Doherty takes the reader through the mind of a woman, alone and abandoned by the world.
Here is a story of Rose, seeking something her parents failed to give her. Instead, she finds two loves gone wrong and a child that is not hers. Caring for the child begins to invade on Rose, who in turn begins a word affair with her eccentric neighbor.
Doherty leaves the reader turning page after page to discover the secrets of Rose and Paedric, Gordon and Edmund.
The longings of Rose combined with faerie tales and make-believe, 'The Vinegar Jar' is a soothing ride through the madness of being alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Berlie Doherty has captured the sorrow of loneliness. 12 Sept. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In her novel "The Vinegar Jar" Berlie Doherty has captured the loneliness of solitude. Rose is alone and does not want to be alone. Like the old woman who lived in the vinegar jar and was never happy, Rose is unsure of what she is missing but knows there is more to life. She looks for happiness first with William, then with Gordon but neither can give her the commitment and fulfillment she is yearning for. She turns to mad Paedric and for a time is happy, but her insane ecstasy is shattered when she is made to realise that her world is built of cobwebs and delusions. Berlie Doherty has written a brilliant and insightful novel that questions the meaning of life and reality. A sensitive and thought-provoking book.
