Excellent contrasts between generations and cultures. I also liked the conversations, conflicts, and the very serious Major dealing with sometimes-humorous, sometimes-awkward, sometimes-uncomplimentary-of-a- certain-social-set situations.

Very good book club discussion on this - how women's rights and freedoms have changed in the past century, and our inability to understand how a woman could choose her freedom over her children. What I liked - the story of a person I've heard of but ...more

The 1st 1/2 is very slow. The 2nd 1/2 -- beginning with the flood -- really picks up. I did not like how the author spoon-fed you explanations of the cat and DSS worker. She ought to have more respect for reader imagination. What I did like was the f ...more
