This book tells the story of one woman's life, and of those intertwined with it. The main theme I got out of the book was that of ageing - of growing up and then growing old.
It has been a long time since I read a 'proper' literature book for adults, I was amazed at how much I missed it! Atwood is simply fantastic. She has a way of writing emotionally without being brash. My favourite part of the book was the section set on the farm; reading about the animals made me smile.
