Overview

Richard and Sara Everton mortgage, sell and borrow, leave friends and country to settle in the Mexican village of Ibarra. They intend to spend the rest of their lives here, in a place neither of them has seen, to speak a language neither of them know. Their dream is to reopen Richard's grandfather's abandoned copper mine.

In a few short months work is advancing in the mine and their home is ready -- then Richard learns he has six years to live.

Richard's determination to make the mine and village prosper matches Sara's effort to deny the diagnosis. While Richard measures time, she rejects its passage.

This novel, Harriet Doerr's first, was written when she was in her seventies. It won the American Book Award.

Winner of the 1984 National Book Award

    Praise Praise Praise

    This woman is truly an inspiration. Was she really 70 when she wrote her first novel? It makes you think that maybe no one should start writing until you have lived enough to have something profound to say. Anywho about the book. To quote a movie - "It is the perfect blend of sexy and cute". Who comes up with "They have not considered that memories are like corks left out of bottles. They swell. They no longer fit" Or "We have come to live among specters, Sara tells herself. They are not people, but silhouettes sketched on a backdrop to deceive us into thinking that the stage is crowded." Not that is that is wicked writing. Total literary orgy.

    A great story by a masterful writer

    This book was not as great as Doerr's other major work (Consider This, Senora) but it was very satisfying. The writing is exceptional and the characters are very vivid. Any comments that the book is a downer miss the point entirely, it's about taking on a new life and acts as a fable about the challenges we all meet. Doerr is a great storyteller and I only wish that she had written more novels.

    What a downer!

    A relentless succession of tragedies, grimly related.
