Read in January, 2006

This book is such a gem. Although written for adults, the narrator is a precocious 11-year-old girl, who reminded me of my favorite childhood book heroines (Anne Shirley, Ramona Quimby). She forms a friendship with an elderly man, while also attempting to get details from her mother about events surrounding her birth. Ultimately both sad and sweet, Clara winter (she doesn't like winter enough to capitalize it) will stick with you long after you're done reading.
