Synopses & Reviews

This book is a masterpiece. I thoroughly enjoyed every sentence in this book - reread some sections for the sheer splendor of the prose.
I will read it again, preferably in the late fall - on my deck, with the sun shining and the cold crisp air imparting it's healthful ways.
I gave my copy away upon reading it - It has to shared with those who love great literature.
