I loved this book!!!

How's that? Do I get an A on my book report? No, really, this novel is filled with imagery and allegory. It's storytelling taken to a heightened state. Blending the supernatural with the mere natural with more skill than Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Echlin reproduced in print the traditions of ancient verbal storytelling. The novel itself tells of three powerful women of the same family, from three generations. Each woman has a special power-- a twist of the supernatural. One can make anything grow, one can control the weather, and the other has something about music... Oh boy, it was a year or two ago, and I already forget. It was a very powerful book to read at the time, and despite being rather dreary, and I was in the midst of a crisis at the time, it did what all great books do... lift my spirits. Wish I could be a little more lucid about how wonderful this book was.

It's for loan only...
