There is never a boring page in the whole thing. There was so much more that could have been explored. Some, like Idella, found one and others, like Dalton, did not. May 14, Leslie rated it liked it Shelves: Idella becomes a cook, housekeeper, marries and raises a family.

Avis goes from being a perfect child for a pro birth control poster to a total you know what as an adult I’m thinking 5 letters, first letter B, rhymes with itch. The author passed away before any of her work was published and her husband and friends published her writings.

The Book |
One of the comm This is a story about 2 sisters and their family who live on a farm trying to live their lives as best they can under difficult circumstances. Kudos to you Stephen King for enjoying this book.
Oct 18, janetandjohn rated it really liked it. Such a great story, with rich characters, and great setting.
The writing is excellent. Since her death, her fiction has been championed by a dedicated group of supporters, including Stephen King and Joyce Carol Oates. Idella and Avis, sisters, are shooed away as their mother gives birth to another sister, Emma.
I like that because it means it’s not bogged down with irrelevant details and information. She was only 49 when she passed away, leaving behind her husband and two children. I loved this book!
So easy to read and hold your attention. Numerous failures to engage an appropriate French Canadian housemaid and a female influence for his daughters result in an hummerschwesstern candidate with the arrival of Maddie, barely more than a child herself, but one who almost succeeds.
Hummerschdestern is a thoroughly entertaining book spanning seventy years, following two sisters from their motherless childhood in Canada to Boston to Maine. It’s profane, loving, hardnosed, and completely beautiful. The People of the Paper City has just been published, a series of portraits of historic figures from Westbrook, Maine, and ends with a chapter about Beverly.
I found it a drudgery to get through it.
