About the Author:
This is a novel of love for the land and loss of a child. I found the parts about citrus farming to be fascinating. The parts of the story at the beginning when it involved Claire and her marriage to Forster and their life as Claire adjusted to being a farmer’s wife and then her falling in love with the farm were truly readable and I fell in the love with the farm too. The passages written after the loss of their son were heartbreaking. Ms. Soli knows how to set a mood with her words and she can really do somber. But as Claire entered life on her own and Minna entered I lost all interest in the book and lost all understanding of what was going on.
I got totally confused. I didn’t understand this Claire. I didn’t understand anything. I found I didn’t even care any longer and had to force myself to finish the book. The way Claire acted with this woman in her life made no sense to me and I therefore lost all respect for the character and therefore the book. I realize from looking at other reviews that I am alone in these feelings but this is my review and therefore my thoughts. I found the last third of the book to be completely unreadable.
