Acquired via BookCrossing 06 Oct 2008 – Minnesota book box

I really enjoyed this psychologically adept tale of a family moving from the city to a small town, with all the usual small-town issues – gossipy neighbours, neighbourhood oddballs, and a failing grocery store. The wartime setting links the small town into the wider world, and it’s really engaging. The feeling of trepidation I experienced in the latter part of the book was answered, but not in the way I expected…

I’m looking forward to reading the other book by this author that I picked out of the book box.
