    A well written book by the author. The story takes place in Can

    A well written book by the author. The story takes place in Canada and New York City during the 1930's and is about two sisters. One sister is a teacher who stays in Canada and the other sister is a radio star in NYC. The characters are clearly portrayed and at times not too likeable. Clara, the main character, is a sad woman who is very constricted in her behavior and thoughts. You don't know if you like her or are angry at her. There were times when I almost felt sorry for her life that she has in Canada.Her sister, Nora, is more likeable but doesn't have much depth. She seems flighty and lives only for the moment. This is an excellent book for a book club. Lots of things to discuss, infidelity, infidelity, being gay in the 1930's and the relationships of family and friends.

    great book

    I really enjoyed this book! It is the type of book that you are so involved in that you forget the rest of the world is going on. You also feel very strongly about the characters and the problems they are faced with. I was so angry at Clara's boyfriend that I had to remind myself it was only a story. I also liked the historical references in the story.

    Wonderful

    I loved this book! The writing is sparse and simple yet powerful. The characters are fully developed and I found myself anxiously anticipating what would happen to Clara next. I loved the strength of this character, I thought she was a quiet rebel and a feminist. I highly recommend this book.

    Amazing

    The book was very good. As a busy person a book really has to catch my eye in order to pull me in and keep me reading, this book did it no problem. A must read for mature readers
