Katherine Y. (Albuquerque, NM)

Interesting character - not the best way to tell her story
Lillian Boxfish is a very interesting character and I might have enjoyed the book more if it were not all told as memories she experiences of her life on an evening when she is taking a walk. I thought that about half way through the book this method of telling the story didn't work as well any more and I lost interest in her visits to places that evoked memories.
Debra L. (Deerfield, IL)

A so so read
The story of Lillian Boxfish was slow. It was nice to have a book focus on a strong independent woman, however I did not find her life interesting.There were too few characters and not enough plot for me.
