Review: Runaway

Runaway Runaway by Alice Munro
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"Three stories are about a woman named Juliet–in the first, she escapes from teaching at a girls’ school into a wild and irresistible love match; in the second she returns with her child to the home of her parents, whose life and marriage she finally begins to examine; and in the last, her child, caught, she mistakenly thinks, in the grip of a religious cult, vanishes into an unexplained and profound silence. In the final story, "Powers," a young woman with the ability to read the future sets off a chain of events that involves her husband-to-be and a friend in a lifelong pursuit of what such a gift really means, and who really has it."

This review was taken from the description of the book and it just says it all. It was very well written and the author certainly has insight into the intimate lives that she writes about.

A good read.
