really liked it
Read in January, 2008

I checked this book out when the next Mary Russell book wasn't available at the library for a few weeks. It is written by the same author, Laurie King. I almost turned it back in after reading the first chapter or two, because I didn't think I was going to like it. I got hooked, and ended up being glued to the book until I finished it several days later. This book tells the story about a woman who decides to go to an island her uncle left to her, and rebuild his cabin that had been destroyed decades earlier. She has struggled with the loss of her husband and daughter, and a few bouts of manic depression. This book is not only a fascinating story about her life, but also helps shed light on an illness that is often misunderstood and misrepresented.
