Delightful! Story-wise it's Lewis Lewis Carroll meets Umberto Eco and centers on a 92 year-old woman who has been deemed useless by her family and shipped off to a home. There she meets an eccentric gaggle of gals and adventure ensues. It's and enchanting story that focuses on the bonds between and the power of older women. A great porch read.
