    A Thousand acres

    I found the beginning of the story confusing with the introduction of too many characters but once I got to know them, the story held me captive. She gives an insight into farming life and family strife. The tale ends as all life does, moving on! Very well written and hard to put down.

    As this well-plotted story proceeds and we learn more about this family, it becomes clear that things have not been right for many years. Certainly not since Larry’s wife and the girls’ mother died when Ginny was fourteen years old. It is now Ginny’s responsibility to cook, clean, and care for her much younger sister along with help from twelve year old Rose. As the story progresses, we discover that even before their mother’s death, Ginny and Rose did not have a carefree childhood. Everything they experienced, as sisters and as a family, shaped their own later lives as surely as a braided loaf of bread. The characters in this book are each unique unto themselves. Each has their own way of getting their way, getting along, and giving way when necessary. The husbands and the neighbours are all well drawn and coloured in – each one is memorable for their own personal impact on the story. There is sadness, tragedy and incredible challenges faced by this family. In the end, how they cope with both the good times and the bad times further defines their characters and their relationships with each other. This book is written with great expertise in illustrating the many dimensions each person carries within. The plot of this book is strongly driven by these characterizations and we come to understand more fully how people’s lives and their interactions with each other sow the seeds of who we become; yet it is how we nurture those seeds that determines how we grow.
