Read during my own prodigal summer.
I loved the way that science as entwined within the stories of this book. I loved that the characters were strong women. I loved the descriptions of the forest and farming, which unlike some books didn’t seem to come in clumps, but were part of the story itself. I loved the grumpy old man and the mad old lady. I hated the frayed, unresolved ending.
I discovered this book in a youth hostel in Madrid and read it on the plane journey home.
After enjoying Prodigal Summer, I picked up The Lacuna from a charity shop.
