Tamsin Eliot isn’t half the painter her father was. She tried, but she didn’t inherit his talent. She didn’t inherit his sense of adventure, either, preferring to stay close to home. But after the death of her mother, she does inherit his coat.

I have mixed feelings about this book..It was just okay..What caught my eye was the word Rockport..I love Rockport Mass..One of the best places to visit in America...I always wanted to have an art studio there..that never happened, however..

So, I found the book to be depressing, overall, and I didn't warm up to the sisters..I felt like I was struggling to get to the end..The feeling of lovely Rockport came through, somewhat, but not really the Rockport that I know and love..Also, the story neede

I was lucky enough to read an advanced copy of Stick Figures. Lane's writing is packed with humanity and introspection, her world full of eloquent, sensory details. Tamsin is a woman seeking truth and meaning in a life that feels like it's coming apart at the seams. Her isolation and yearning for her happy past is palpable.

This was such a lovely tale of sisters and family and finding oneself! Jennifer M Lane writes beautifully, creates believable characters who mimic real life and delves info women’s fiction as though she’s been writing it her whole life. I will definitely be reading more by her. Stick Figures from Rockport was a wonderfully done story.

(Bonus, I know all the Pennsylvania roads and towns where her main character resides. That’s always fun!)

Jennifer weaves such rich, vivid detail into her work and Stick Figures does not disappoint. Tasmin is a wonderfully relatable, strong and fantastically flawed character. When she messes up, she’s believable and frank. I loved this quiet but tense read. If you love immersive writing, rich detail and a good character arc, you’ll love it too!
