FROM THE PUBLISHER
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.

Picked this up on audiobook at the library, so I'm marking it available.

I recently finished listening to this book on audio. I enjoyed it a lot. Patty Jane, Harriet, Ione, Nora and the other characters were all so likable. I was really rooting for them to find a way to surmount their troubles. I wasn't a big fan of the reveal of what happened to Thor, as it seemed to be just too unbelievable, but that's a small matter.

I've always liked Lorna Landvik's books because they so reflect my own Midwestern Scandinavian upbringing. This one is another winner.

Saving for the next round of my First Sentences Virtual Bookbox.

This is a nice surprise! I picked this from the first sentences vbb and it sounds fun, I'm quite chuffed with my choice. Thanks for sending collectorkerri! :)

I finished this a few days ago and really enjoyed it. It's a nice light read, even though quite a few tragic things happen throughout the book. The main characters are very likable, and I guess it all feels kind of cosy.
