    One Reply to “In My Mother's House”

    1. In My Mother's House by Elizabeth Winthrop. A story of moving intensity focusing around the circle of life and the damages done by incest, particularly as they apply to women. This is a very matriarchal slant in step with the times, and spanning three generations. A good read and a fast one. I look forward to reading Winthrop again.

    2. A surprising book that covered the lives of three generations of women and a bond between their lives. It is set in New England, spanning the family's history from the late 1800's until the 1970s. It is an absorbing story of a family secret which nearly destroyed their relationships but which was overcome by their strong family ties. I found it well written and captivating.
