Natural History

Thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for an early read of this book. 
This is a thoughtful collection of interconnected stories. The six stories in Natural History are set largely in a small community in central New York State and portray some of her most beloved characters. Barrett has an eye for the natural world and I really enjoyed that. It made me think about how the role of women's lives in families, work, and in love have shifted across a century and more. 
Great book!

As always, Andrea Barrett delivers an exquisite, thoughtful and richly detailed read in NATURAL HISTORY. This collection of short stories showcases her mastery of characterization and her passion for science and its impact on our lives. Highly recommended. 

My thanks to Norton and to Netgalley for the opportunity and pleasure of an early read.
