Top Customer Reviews
The size of the world expands and contracts through the voices of Silber's characters. With great skill Silber weaves the lives of her characters together in such a way that, what reads like a collection of short stories, evolves into a connection which makes for a wonderful novel.
Told in the first person, each character becomes a personality in their own right, inhabiting their own geological location and their own era, yet Silber manages to connect one with another.
A wonderful story....beautifully told !
This book came to me through LibraryThing Early Reviewer's program. Being able to "preview" ARC copies is so much fun, it helps so much to be able to pass on "word of mouth" recommendations. This book gets a big thumbs up !
