Read full description of the books:For me, Naylor does the type of magical realism that I can understand. She brings in elements of country lore and mysticalism mixes it with real world stoytelling. When people believe in magic strong and hard through generations, then there is something very real that develops at out it. Also, of course, I like the love story.

Naylor keeps the story in contemporary time and doen't go through dozens of generations to tell the story or delves into so much symbolism that you can't tell the sky from a bathtub.
