St. Elizabeth's is a home for unwed mothers in the 1960s. Life there is not unpleasant, and for most, it is temporary. Not so for Rose, a beautiful, mysterious woman who comes to the home pregnant but not unwed. She plans to give up her baby because she knows she cannot be the mother it needs. But St. Elizabeth's is near a healing spring, and when Rose's time draws near, she cannot go through with her plans, not all of them. And she cannot remain forever untouched by what she has left behind . . . and who she has become in the leaving.… (més)

Our group loves this author and the writing was expectedly superb though some didn't care for the main character. The story and the other characters carried the tale to its appropriate conclusion. Other characters could have had more developed backgrounds. ( )

Rose was not-long-married to nice guy Thomas when she just left without a word. It was the 1960s and she was pregnant, so she drove across the country until she came to a home for unwed mothers run by nuns. As Rose helped Sister Evangeline in the kitchen, she found she really enjoyed it there. When much older handyman, Son fell in love with her, she agreed to marry him and stayed on to continue cooking for the girls who continued to arrive, as Son and Rose’s daughter Cecelia grew up there.

I listened to the audio, which was fine. I didn’t like Rose much – for the life of me, I could not figure out why she would have left Thomas. I kept wondering when she would leave Son and Cecelia, too! Have to admit, although I didn’t like Rose, I did find her narration more interesting than Son’s. I did lose a bit of interest when it was Son’s turn. Cecelia rounded out the POV for the last third of the book. I didn’t like the non-ending. What the heck was that!? I’ve lowered my rating by a quarter-star for the non-ending. I kept looking at how much time was left in the audio, and thought – am I missing a part!? No, I wasn’t. ( )

Spoiler alert:

Not sure how to feel about this book.

The writing kept me engaged, but I just could not relate to Rose or fully understand her choices. Unlike “The Awakening,” Rose’s need to walk away seemed more pathological than an inability to conform to societal expectations. Plus she leaves the 1st time (and deeply hurts others) to end up in a 2nd loveless marriage where she proceeds to, again, walk away from everything. I feel like I invested so much time on this only to be deeply disappointed.

There are some themes (sainted motherhood or sainthood itself, sacrifice) running thorough the book...for example, was the work and sacrifice she made for others payment enough? Enough to pay for her lack of attachment? For leaving? Was she punishing herself...or her mother? And if so, for what?

I’m over this one. ( )

Een verhaal waarin je in verzinkt, een vreemde wereld die omarmt. Losse en verloren eindjes vinden mekaar. Niet alles eindigt in harmonie en schoonheid, mededogen legt er een warm dekentje over. Een absolute topper van Ann Patchett! ( )

The setting of this novel is key. It was the 1960s, so a woman leaving her loveless marriage to make her own life was unheard of. There were times when I felt I had come to the ending, but another layer unfolded adding depth to the characters and showed the brillance of the novelist. ( )
