THE STONE DIARIES traces the life of an ordinary woman, born in Manitoba in 1905, college-educated, married twice, mother of three children, newspaper columnist, widow and world traveler. Daisy Goodwill Flett of this Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is brought clearly to life in both print and sound by author Carol Shields. Her gentle diction, her matter-of-fact delivery and almost emotionless tone are reflective of Daisy's life. The presentation style skillfully mirrors the tone and feeling of the text. This is an outstanding abridgment, which captures the major events in the life of an ordinary woman and the century in which she lived. A.A.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 96]
