When I started to read "The Canning Season" I wasn't sure what to expect. First off, the mother named her daughter Ratchet, which I didn't really understand. However, as I read more and more into it I really started to enjoy the book. It is a simple read book and if you can get into it, it's actually at a fairly fast pace.

I thought the structure of the book was interesting. Sometimes I couldn't remember if we were in a story that one of the characters were telling or if it was back to the reality of the characters. It was just slgihtly confusing because they would go back and forth from their side comments during the story and they always seemed like they were long. However, I enjoyed reading the book and seeing what happened when the older characters were younger.

Warnings: There is violent death that is a little descriptive. If you squirm with medical procedures and death, I'd be careful while reading this book. There is some language that may not suit some readers.
