The story was a reflection on the poignantly sad aspects of human existence at the time. I prefer a story that has a more positive slant as we are living through very troubled times in our country now.
All story lines were completed. No particular surprises.
No particular scene comes to mind, but the various descriptions of how the tapestries were made were fascinating to me, a former needlepointer. The description of how the blind character picked herbs and managed her garder was also very interesting.
Although I listened to the entire story it was not truly worth my listening time. The story was simply not my cup of tea.
In spite of my lack of enthusiasm for this well publicized book I have to acknowledge that the story was very well written by the author. Others may be perfectly happy with this story.
The specific directions for behavior change was made easy to understand with plenty of examples.
Definitely yes to anyone frustrated with dieting or any other habit changes .
This book gave me hope for achieving personal goals.
I would recommend any of Martha Beck's book. There is always great humor mixed in to the material .
