Quickie recap: Carol is a big-city girl who marries a small-town doctor. She is gung-ho to take on his backwards town and revolutionize it but the citizens repel her so she has to go outside her social class to even find friends.
Quickie review: It's kind of funny how the same archetypes exist even a hundred years later. Actually, it's not kind of funny - it IS a funny, satirical, sometimes biting book - surprisingly funny, at times. And if you've ever lived in a small town, you recognize the shops, the citizens, the complaints. It's all very familiar and very wisely put.
Quickie recommendation: Props to my man Sinclair.
