A widowed father with 3 boys puts an ad in the newspaper for a housekeeper. He receives a response and much, much more.
My first foray into Doig's work was a very nice experience. There were some beautiful passages, and I really enjoyed his writing style. My lack of enthusiasm stems from the actual story. I never had a desire to listen when I couldn't and just wasn't excited about it. It was just a story -- told well, but just a story. While I can't say it was excellent, I can understand why others do.
