Riassunto: Ranging from the 1850s to the present, and from Ontario to Brisbane and Albania, these eight long stories are concerned with the daily threads of life in two small Ontario towns. Each story centres on unconventional women who refuse to let themselves be constrained by society or everyday life.
Dal risvolto interno:
In these eight tales, Munro evokes the devastating power of old love suddenly recollected. She tells of vanished schoolgirls and indentured frontier brides and an eccentric recluse who, in the course of one surpassingly odd dinner party, inadvertently lands herself a wealthy suitor from exotic Australia. And Munro shows us how one woman's romantic tale of capture and escape in the high Balkans may end up inspiring another woman who is fleeing a husband and lover in present-day Canada.
" Open Secrets is a book that dazzles with its faith in language and in life."-- New York Times Book Review
