KIRKUS REVIEW

A deliberately ingenuous and simple portrait of a Canadian mother and her family, which records the significance of the everyday, the claims and limitations, flurries and concerns, and implied pleasures of a life given over to others. In short episodes, Sheila transmits momentary incidents, -- the disappearance of their terrier, the inevitable perpetual housework, a day in bed with a toothache, a neighbor, an operation on her little girl, Christmas, a very cold day, Spring, Summer and berrying, a recital, a play, and particularly her three children. Gentle, , a trifle dulcet.
