This was an excellent read... I loved it. It's a rather understated story of a Canadian school teacher and her glamourous, successful sister who is a radio star in NYC in the 30's. The characters are well drawn, their trials are realistic and Wright's style totally engages. But Clara is the star and her grace and courage totally impress. Critics commented on the decade of the 30's as a central feature and the place of women pre-women's lib as a significant factor in the story. I thought that Clara's world and choices were totally dictated by the times and I respected her all the more. Well worth the read and I am sorry that I have finished this wonderful story.
