it was amazing

WOW!!!! This is will be one of my top reads of 2010! This is an absolutely beautifully written book! It is about two completely different women living in on farms in the Midwest during the Depression. It has a dark Gothic feel, yet I was not depressed while I was reading it. These two women came to this area at the same time as brides, and their relationship happens over the course of events in their lives. Eddie was raised on a farm and is built for farming so farm life comes second hand to her, yet for Mary who did not grow up on a farm, farm life is completely foreign to her. I would not call Eddie and Mary friends because I don't think they even liked each other, however they managed to be there for each other in ways that you wouldn't expect from them at all. I was incredibly moved by this book. I am a huge fan of debut authors and Ms. Hoover did not disappoint! I am giving this book a lighthouse and shining a light on it for outstanding debut novel.
