Rising Tide - M.J. Farrell A good story of how miserable it was to be an unmarried woman at the turn of the 20th century. We often forget how far we've come. There is still inequality, but nothing like then. Darker, deeper, less funny than other Keane novels. That's good for me, because I don't like her cynical humor that much.
