Barfoot, Joan. Luck. Carroll & Graf Publishers.
The story of three women who are left after the death of one man. He is husband to one, employer to two, and lover to one of his employees. Well written and enjoyable. Barfoot questions just what Luck is. She has been compared to Carol Shields (I think for her use of simple words that are difficult to define, such as Luck, Love, Unless, etc.). Otherwise her writing isn’t quite up to Shields, but, whose is? Barfoot’s story is a very enjoyable read.
