Book 395: Country Wives

Country Wives, by Rebecca Shaw, Doubleday, 2001.

I bought this book for a dollar at a thrift store.  I had just found a wool jacket for $2, so I was feeling generous, and this book SEEMED intriguing.

As a child, I spent five years in James Harriot country.  I recognized the speech and the scenery in both the books and the movies.  I didn't get this book at all.

Everything about this book felt so forced and contrived.  I wasn't expecting another Harriot series, but I was expecting quite a bit more than this book delivered.
