Alice Munro’s masterful stories are ingrained with such truth about life that readers always want to know where they came from. In this book—her most personal to date—she tells us.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not my favourite I love Alice Munro but I found this book a dry read and more like reading a history book than the usual short stories written by Munro. Still if you are a Munro fan it,s worh the read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The View from Castle Rock Munroe takes me back to the years of my youth. Her life on the farm is a reflection of my own. I grew up on a farm not far from hers. This story brought many memories back. Feels Iike I am taking a walk through the fields with her. Great read!
