Venetia C's review of the book expresses my sentiments also. For most of the book the setting is timeless, until the last third when events from the late 1960's are mentioned. The visual descriptions and the family values toward the land reminded me of Wendell Berry's writing. The life experiences of the two sisters tugged at my emotions as much as "Cold Mountain" did. I'll be reading Clay's Quilt next.
