Kaye Gibbons can really write. It seems that she seamlessly and graciously introduces characters into her books that tend to stick to your ribs long after you put the book down, sorry to have had to read the last page and said goodbye. This is the story of 3 generations of women of North Carolina in the 1940's, Charlie,an unlicensed doctor witty and outspoken, her daughter Sophia, who is very different woman from her mother, and Sophia's daughter, Margaret, who grows up looking for her own place amidst these two strong women. Margaret gets to narrate the story and it's a story that any woman can relate to on many different levels. Highly recommended.
