Acclaimed Canadian writer Alice Munro takes the facts of her family's emigration to Canada and turns the earlier parts into fiction, and the recent past into a tender memoir that offers a glimpse into her own part in that history. Kimberly Farr picks up the thread that Munro weaves, bringing a Scots accent and a harsh sparseness of emotion to Munro's early ancestors and gradually dropping both as they assimilate over the generations. Farr becomes the voice for family members as they struggle in the New World and easily transitions into contemporary times as she recounts Munro's cancer scare. Farr is the perfect match for this exquisite writing. H.L.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
