Unless - Carol Shields I found this to be a fairly honest look at a woman's psyche. While it was not stream of consciousness, it could have been. The way that thinking of her daughter's childhood brings her back to her childhood. By the way, I relate greatly to her childhood. The girl that was written could have been me.

I loved the ending of this book. I loved the reason that Norah was sitting on the street corner with the word "Goodness" on a sign around her neck. I loved the way the news story had been dropped in earlier to the storyline, but there was no real discussion of it.
