Review quote

"A masterpiece, a chronicle of ordinary lives told with extraordinary insight." --"St. Louis Post-Dispatch""Scene after scene is brought to life with an enraptured attention that causes them to glow with an almost visionary light." -- "The New York Times Book Review""Remarkable...like a beautiful old quilt, made up of bright vivid patches, with scenes that surprise and delight and seem absolutely true."-- "People""A rare book, one of those splendid evocations of place made so justifiably famous by masters of the British novel in the past century: George Eliot, Hardy, Lawrence"-- "Houston Post"
