I loved this book. It was the first Lorna Landvik book that I read. Landvik makes you feel as if you know the people in this book personally. It takes the characters from the time they are young all the way through their lives. I couldn't stop reading this and didn't want it to end.
Lorna Landvik writes about family, friendship, and love. This book is so heartwarming!...and heartbreaking at times as well. I'll never forget Patty Jane or Harriet! Lorna Landvik's characters become my best friends from the moment I begin each one of her books! They jump to life right off the pages!
I absolutely adored "Patty Jane's House of Curl". I wish I could get my hair done there!
I was impressed and pleasantly surprised by the writing style and plot of this book. There are times I actually gasped because I couldn't believe where the story went. I can't wait to read more from this author!
Patty Jane's House of Curl is an easy-to-read, joyous and funny story of a family of women, the tragedies in their lives, the strengths they find within themselves, and their ultimate victories. It follows the lives of two wacky Minnesota sisters, Patty Jane and Harriet, in a female Lake Wobegon where humor and hope overcome life's trials.
This is a great light read. Perfect for the beach on a sunny day, or for sitting by the fireside on a winter's night. The characters are well written--you care about them. The situations are zany, and sometimes stretch belief a tad. And there is just enough reality and substance to be able to reflect on it a bit after finishing it. Worth spending some time with.
