About this author

HIlda Dunn was born in Syracuse to parents who had immigrated from Great Britain after the first world war. She studied at Edinburgh University for two years after graduating from Syracuse University in 1947, also traveling on the continent at that postwar moment, experiences reflected in her only novel. She worked from many years as a copywriter for Jordan Marsh and Filene's department stores in Boston. In 1961, she married Michael J. Glaubman, a professor of physics at Northeastern University. Together they raised four children in the Boston area, and Hilda also earned a Masters degree in English literature in 1974. She passed away while on vacation in England in 1998.

This is the volume that almost did me in. I ground to a halt somewhere in here and stayed there for 2 years, then later tried to pick up and realized I'd actually finished it and forgotten. Oops! For some reason the chapters in this one are much long ...more

Realized somewhat belatedly that I was failing to review these. They are definitely an achievement - incredibly long and consistent, huge cast of characters, pretty interesting story. But a lot of the writing is pretty awful, and, while I'm impressed ...more

I think this may have been my least favorite of the three volumes, or maybe I just listened to too much of it on audio book, which is like listening to 12 hours of someone telling a four-year-old that their pony is being made into dog food. I love th ...more
