Being at a crossroads of my own, the latest in an endless journey of crossroads and forks in the road, I read this little book on the recommendation of this website.
With all the pictures, and essentially double spacing between lines, it is really just a 40-45 page essay. A slow reader, it did indeed take a full hour of my time. I like to savor words, and many of Ann Patchett's gems are just scattered amongst the details of her story. Read it too fast, and you are sure to miss out on some of her greatest wisdom.
It is a beautiful little book with super illustrations, best read with a cup of tea and time to contemplate. I look forward to reading it again.
