Read in June, 2007

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Alexandra is a strong heroine who demonstrates much to recommend her. Her external success is the reflection of her strong internal character. The internal world of Emil, however, is a mess. Though he choses unwisely, he is still a symphathetic character and i identified with Alexandra in wanting more for him.

Her landscape descriptions and how the weather and land shape the story give a beauty and vibrance to Nebrasks (yes, Nebraska of all places!) that stayed with me beyond the book.
