Seven Sisters

The Seven Sisters - Margaret Drabble Candida Wilton is stuck. Her husband has left her. She is estranged from her children. She has moved off to the wilds of London and all that is keeping her grounded are her visits to the health club and writing in her journal. And then, quite unexpectedly, her friends.As one becomes...well, let's just say it...OLDER...it is nice to reflect on the experiences of others who have passed through this time and lived to tell of their adventures. Books are a very nice way to visit these hinterlands unscathed and this is a particularly good journey through. Recommended.(I wouldn't be a good reviewer---not that I'm making that boast for myself, but anyway---if I didn't at least hint at the cool way Drabble uses shifting point of views in this story. That's all I'll say for now, but see what you think.)
