Harriet Doerr "Stones for Ibarra"

Harriet Doerr is a wonderful writer. Her novel is a story told with affectionate and patient wisdom, beautifully written. Richard and Sara have come to the small Mexican village of Ibarra to reopen a copper mine abandoned by Richard's grandfather fifty years ago. They left their country and friends, lived among people who both respected and misunderstood them and taught them much about life.
'Stones for Ibarra" is Doerr's first novel, won the 1985 National Book Award for first fiction. Harriet was 75 years old!!!
