      I recieved this book from my sister several years ago becuase I greatly like prose. To give a bit of information this book deals with the lead character named Mac Mordon. Mr. Mordon has recently lost his wife to cancer and this book deals with his loss and the emotional feelings and mental feelings that his healing entails. This book is one of those books

      that I enjoy to an extent but do not read very often.

      The best thing about this book is the magnificant prose that the author incorportaes into the novel. There are some parts that are just so beautifully that to me it was like the author was singing the words to me.

      were quite a few times that this novel was just so depressing that I had to quit reading it. I only finished the book because the prose was so good. If it had not been for the prose I probably would not have gotten half way through the novel.

      Overall I think this is a decent book. I would recommend it for those who enjoy good

I think that if I would have had a choice I would have opted to simply rent the book from the library instead of owning it. However, as it was a gift I cannot really get rid of it.
