    " What I realized when I finished the book was that the whole thing was building to the last line, and the payoff of the last line was absolutely incredible. The Eastwoods were really fascinating characters, quite original (to me). "

    " Essence of the novel stays a long time with me. Remakable. "

    " These stories made me a D. H. Lawrence fan and no, I have not yet read the "big" D. H. Lawrence books. That doesn't mean I'm not a fan. Yes, I enjoyed this slim volume that much. "

    " I had absolutely no expectations from this collection of short stories, and now I have nearly no idea what to say about them. I wasn't disappointed by any of these tales, and feel like the last one ('The Woman Who Rode Away') was the most powerful. If I were any kind of decent reviewer, I'd go through each one of the stories and discuss them, but I just don't have that kind of time. I'll say that the persistent theme throughout all these unconnected pieces seemed to be the infeasibility of marriage. Whether it's a man or woman, someone ends up disappointed to some degree with the wedded life here. Maybe a bleaker outlook toward monogamy would help enjoy these stories, but they do stand well even without it. "
