Reviewer: Rosalind Daily -
If you're looking for a slower-paced introspective story about a woman's journy to "finding herself," with a little mystery and travel thrown in, then this book is for you.

This is a little different from Gilman's other stories, where action and mystery set the stage. This one is about a woman who is coming out of a difficult past and forcing herself to be real again. At times it seemed to be wordy, but it was all to develop the character and the journey.

I found it a good read and sympathized with the character. Not that I had gone through what she has, but we all have our darker times. She started as a selfish silly woman into someone who was sufficient and finaly took responsibility for herself. This is well worth the time to take to read.
