If Dixon is unfailingly honest about the tangles women’s lives can involve, she also displays fidelity to the notion of endurance, to the idea that life, with all its pain and disappointment and aggravation, is finally worth fighting for.

High-Water Mark is a beautiful book with a marbled soft cover and thick creamy paper inside, published by a small press, Porcupine’s Quill. It’s a fitting way to package such engaging tales.

This is wholly appropriate for a book that deals frankly with women’s lives, the thorny emotional terrain they must negotiate in work and in their family and romantic attachments.
