Oops - I hit "enter" too soon on the above message. I have started One of Ours - just starting to get engrossed in it - and am wondering if anyone else is reading it.
Just finished it. A beautiful story. The first in many years (since, in fact, The Color Purple) which seemed to me to have a perfect story arc.
I finally finished it. It left me thinking. As I was reading through it, I sometimes felt that Cather was romanticizing the nobility of war and the American soldiers (this in spite of her blandly describing little girls shot through the head!) - but the final pages make it clear that it is not the author, but the protaganist who romanticizes it, because it is his ticket to freedom.
