Rated 4 out of 5 by from Friend of My Youth I bought this as a gift for an elderly friend who has eye problems, the large print books are hard to find and I was so pleased that there was an Alice Munro book available in large print. I am pleased to say that my friend is reading the book and says she loves it and really wanted a book by this author., she says the writer has a beautiful way to tell a story.
