Just another GR refugee. Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.
A strange little novel (only about 250 pages), but a quick read for a warm June afternoon. (I read over a third of it waiting for my mother to get done in the South Carolina Room at the library, actually.)
Set mostly in a small village (my assumption was Spain, the blurb says France) that is inhabited entirely by eccentrics, it has a certain amount of charm. Perhaps someone who is more spiritual than I am would find it even more so - I cannot really say.
I am, however, with the Man in the Wing Back Chair (one of the major characters has only this name) on the topic of Little Women.
