I've just finished, THE WINTER GARDEN by Kristin Hannah. I listened to it as an audio book on my Walkman. When it first starts, the story seems a bit trivial, but it builds into a very compelling story. It's a contemporary story of two adult sisters, who have always felt unloved by their seemingly cold mother. At their father's deathbed, he makes them promise to make their mother tell them her "fairly tale." The book develops into a story-within-a-story as the mother tells her story, which is actually an account of her life as a young woman in Leningrad during the siege of Stalin. I recommend it.
