Gillian Campbell interweaves points of view by alternating between the world as seen through the eyes of children, especially 'Imo', and the story of the adult Imogene who is struggling to cope. Thanks to deft touches of humour, this is not a sad book, although it deals with sadness as part of life. And, of course, it is endlessly fascinating to read about Quebec and the 'love affair' between the French and the English.
