Beyond Great May 5, 2007
A reluctant psychic who's the real deal, who would sometimes rather not deal with the what she learns, or with the departed riffraff who have glommed onto her. A woman dealing with her weight, with friends who never quite get her...deserted by her mother, longing to know her father. The veracity of Mantel's writing draws you into the life of this eccentric woman and then never lets go. A wonderful book.
