Yes, I'm pretty sure I'll return to it more than once.
This is worth buying for Stockard Channing's reading of 'Why I live at the PO' and Joyce Carol Oates' disturbing 'Where are you going, where have you been' read so well by Christine Baranksi. I loved Jerry Stiller's reading of At the Anarchist's Convention too. But really, the whole collection is outstanding and every reader is brilliant.
I kept laughing out loud on the bus listening to 'Why I live at the PO', and ended up in a foetal position listening to 'Where are you going ...'
Wonderful medieval tale
The end - when Alyce understands that only by her own determination will she realise her dream of becoming a midwife.
They are all fantastic, but I loved when cat revives and the time Alyce and Cat spend together.
When Alyce leaves the village in despair of ever becoming a midwife and her sense of loss.
A really interesting story. It's listed as a young adult's book, I think, but should appeal to all ages. It's never condescending or preachy in getting its message across. Jenny Sterlin's narration was perfect for the story.
