Though I appreciate Laurence’s writing, it was difficult to find empathy for her main character, a 90 year old woman who is cranky, mean spirited and emotionally frozen. She tells the story of her life, growing up on the Canadian prairie, her unhappy marriage, the death of her son and finally her pride and fierceness in facing her own mortality.
