    Overall

    Five Quarters of the Orange is a testimate to how life experience changes one's perspective. A young Franboise Dartigen and her mother, Maribell experience the classic love and hate relationship many mothers and daughters struggle with during their youth. Maribelle a seemingly callased and bitter woman is left to manage the family farm and raise her children after the death of her husband during during WW II. This novel dialetically reveals a story of young people using their own natural resources to survive in a less than ideal situation, secrets that lead to their family demise, and a daughter coming to understand her mother. Joanne Harris offers vivid imagary that captivates. Along with a vulnerability throughout this novel, Joanne Harris writes honestly about what was really goes on inside family homes. A slow read at first, make yourself push through the first thirty pages, you will be glad you did.
