After reading Glass’ Three Junes (2002) I anxiously watched for The Whole World Over. It was all that I hoped for and more.

Greenie is a passionate baker, devoted to her four-year-old son. Her husband falls into a midlife depression while her friend nurses a broken heart. The character and plot development are excellent. I started the book by listening to the recorded disc from Books on Tape read by Anne Marie Lee. The recording is excellent and the narrator captures the drama of the story. I read the last third of the book, and reading was just as satisfying as listening.

If you haven’t read Three Junes yet, I would recommend this title as well. I read it on a rainy winter day in Positino ~ sure wish I was back there reading!! --Kara
