    A different type of family saga

    At first glance, this is a very different novel from Ann-Marie MacDonald's previous two (Fall on Your Knees and The Way the Crow Flies), with its familiar and contemporary Toronto setting and barely disguised narrator. But the hallmarks of her other books are here too: the epic sense of family secrets, the dark sense of humour, the personal as political. A very powerful work from one of Canada's best authors.

    A disappoint

    I loved her first two novels but was very disappointed with this third book. Not much happens. It is true that parenting is often challenging but I feel that the book is more about navel gazing.

    Adult Onset

    This short story moves back and forth in time while covering only a few days in the present. Beautifully written with ciuntless special quips for Toronto folk, it reminds me of the daily grind f raising small children, almost forcing me to relive the rigors of the experience. The remarkable thing for me is the difference between the lesbian nuclear family and my own hetero experience - none worth mentioning. A disappountment after the brilliant Fall on your Knees, but a solid literary voyage well worth the trip.

    Missing story

    I kept waiting for the story to get some momentum. Being in a gay relationship isnt enough to keep a reader invested in a story.

    Amazing

    A difficult subject done with a delicate touch. Lyrical and elegant, you will fall in love with Mary-Rose, even as you watch her fall apart.
