It was one of the most boring books I have ever tried to read. I kept thinking there was some sort of message or point to this book, but I read all the way through and there was nothing. I wish I could get my money back. I felt ripped off.

What I took from this book is that many people are searching for a "place." And many people are connected to the places of their lives. They remember specific things about where they have lived. The places of our lives shape us into the people we are. Each of us should try to create our own space, our own place, it will be different for everyone. It might not be the last one, even if we start out wanting it to be. And it doesn't have to be expensive, or far away or anything, as it is unique to each of us. And maybe it is not even a physical place. I really enjoyed this thought provoking book.! It is a KEEPER, I will read it again.

Who hasn't been through a remodel on an existing house or the building a new "dream home!" Ms. Proulx exemplifies the ins and outs along with all the setbacks that are never figured in...but always happen! Yet through all of her effort(s) to maintain a positive attitude she manages to bring about a most astonishing description of what must be absolute and sheer beauty! Her property must be even more beautiful than her vivid descriptions of the wildlife contained within...or what migrates in and out with the seasons! But she always comes back to the basis of the writings and that is the ongoing construction of "Bird Cloud" as well as the upgrading of the property. Yet in the final chapter she admits that one's 'dream house' may actually be just that; a dream! Highly recommended reading! D. Bowden
