It centers on Marie Fermoyle, a strong but vulnerable divorced woman whose loneliness and ambition for her children make her easy prey for the dangerous con man Omar Duvall.' This is the first printing, which preceded Oprah's rather problematical selection of this book - both because it was out of print at the time and because of its length. Nevertheless, this is a wonderful book, incredibly evocative of a place and era not quite forgotten - the title refers to the ritual of the Catholic Church for days which are not recognized as holy - 'ordinary time.' Despite it's length - at 740 pages - this is virtually impossible to put down. ISBN: 0-67086014X.
