As I meander through the site, I've been revisiting the book reviews I'd prepared and posted on barnesandnoble.com.
I've added my review of The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane below and wanted to add the review of A Fortunate Age by Joanna Smith Rakoff
A Fortunate Age: A Novel by Joanna Smith Rakoff
rating: 2 of 5 stars
I enjoyed the book very much. It may be in part that I'd recently moved to NYC so the location descriptions and dialogue seemed very plausible. It is also because though my own experience is very different from that of the characters, I could relate to the various dilemmas and complicated relationships that the lead women confronted.
I had expected that I would enjoy the book but thought it would be lighter and frothy and was happy to find it much meatier and engrossing than I'd expected!
