"It would be utopian to imagine that the present-day world could go into reverse and completely reorganize itself.
We have...come to believe that contemporary life wears women out, debases the family, and crushes the human capacity for thought."
On whose blog did I first see this book? All I remember is that, curious, I sent out for an inter-library loan, it came quickly, and I couldn't put it down.
It's a story of a well-educated, modern woman who gets a job in a town that may as well be from the past, as far as beliefs and outlooks go. It takes her a while to see the value of this way of living. The author has something definite she wants to say, and I am just amazed that such a book can have been written today. A light, pleasant read with a serious message.
