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!

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.

Geeez I didn't want this book to end. This isn't a chic or a cozy read as the title may suggest. This is the story of Patty Jane's House of Curl, a place where women could not only go to get their hair & nails done but to go & talk & better yet to be heard. It's a story of friendship & it's a story of sisters, family & love & above all to each their quest for dignity. I was laughing & I was sobbing. It's a wonderful warmhearted place I wanted to be real. Looking back there was a lot of wisdom in this book. I'll read it again someday in the near future. It's one of those books when you turn the last page you look up and say, "I won't be able to top this one for awhile".

This book made me laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time. I was on my knees towards the end bawling! No other writer has ever been able to do that to me. This book is incredible. I felt like I was there in the moments sharing the ups and downs as I read. You will not be sorry you picked this book up!
