Read in October, 2009

I liked the voice in the diary of newly divorced Candida Wilton, who had been wife to a headmasternow married to a wealthy younger woman. Wilton is angry, depressed, and honestly trying to make a life for herself. She makes friends, spearheads a trip for seven women to the land of Virgil with her favorite scholar along. The travel group make up the seven sisters. She makes every effort to be honest with herself, surprising the reader as she reconnects with her daughters and old friends. The story sounds trite, but told in the voice of her diary it intrigues.
