Nancy Burns no review, just 3 stars?

Claire McAlpine Just adding it to the list of books I have read, I only review those read recently, I'd have to reread it to review it, but I do recall it was a slow and not an easy read but a friend just read it recently and the same day I saw her copy lying around, I read that Alison McVety had won the UK National Poetry Competition with a poem entitled 'To the Lighthouse' which pays homage to Virginia Woolf. If you are interested here is the link. Thanks for asking :)

Thanks for the link, I already read the winning poem. It is so touching....that it still lingers in my mind. That is why I was curious what you thought about the book. I plan to read it b/c of the poem!


Claire McAlpine Wonderful, I am tempted as well, a reread and some years might bring new insights.
