    FREE READER ´ DOC The uickening Paperback ´ CITYBREAKSCHEAP The uickening35 starsThis story is very sober It could almost be a morality tale teaching that if you willfully hurt others you could end up losing what you hoped to keep for yourself The tale is told by two Midwestern farm wives of the early 20th century Enidina and Mary are very different in temperament and beliefs and they do

    FREE READER ´ DOC The uickening Paperback ´ CITYBREAKSCHEAP The uickeningThis is beautifully written but so dark and full of despair that I couldn't wait for it to end so I could reenter the light of my clean and well ordered life That it took only a uiet morning to read is testament both to its gripping power and my determination to not linger in the dust and mud of Depression era IowaThe words and scenes are powerfully rendered and unflinching in their depiction of the isolation and desperation of American farm life in the early years of the 20th century But the tenuous grasp on solid mental ground of the central characters and the bitterness that runs thickly through their veins overwhelmed so short a space Did these p

    FREE READER ´ DOC The uickening Paperback ´ CITYBREAKSCHEAP The uickeningThis not a happy book it is dark and thought provoking It is beautifully written and almost has a gothic feel to it It is set somewhere in the Midwest I am from North Dakota so in my mind that is where this took place and spans from 1913 1950 and tells the story of Enidina Mary neighbors on the plains yet different in every way I don’t think these women were ever friends Enidina is a hardworking farmer‘s wife who grew up with brothers on her family farm so is no stranger to hard work Mary is a soft woman who really does not know who she is and I didn’t like her very much I liked Enidina she had a good character and she was a good person The story goes through th

    FREE READER ´ DOC The uickening Paperback ´ CITYBREAKSCHEAP The uickeningWOW 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

    FREE READER ´ DOC The uickening Paperback ´ CITYBREAKSCHEAP The uickeningHoover's tale of two women wrangling an existence out of the Iowa prairie in the years before the Depression is reminiscent of both Willa Cather and William Faulkner I have been waiting for a writer to create fiction about Midwesterners that transfered Gothic themes from their usual perch in a rotting Southern house to a cabin on a windswept prairie Hoover advances the pioneer tale genre with her unsparing descriptions of the tragedies and burdens o

    FREE READER ´ DOC The uickening Paperback ´ CITYBREAKSCHEAP The uickeningThe uickening is a very special novel Painfully told it records the lives and friendship of two farm women in early 1900s Iowa The chapters alternate between the voice of Enidina Eddie and Mary who are very different women Eddie is strong in body and spirit made for country farm life Mary is delicate and at odds with farming and the isolation of rural livingThey form a friendship a bond born of necessity rather than choice Through the years with its many life changes they remain loyal to each other The dependence brought by isolation is their constant bond As the Great Depression looms affecting farming and the community families come under pressure and friendships are tested Ultimately secrets are exposed and a series of events changes everything with lasting conseuences

    FREE READER ´ DOC The uickening Paperback ´ CITYBREAKSCHEAP The uickeningI was swept along by Michelle Hoover's lyrical rendering of the hard lives of farmers in the first half of the 20th centuryThe beauty of the prose contrasts with the tale of heartbreak deceit loss and betrayals I felt the tragedies as keenly as I would feel the sharpness of the knives that did such damage physical and emotional The hardscrabble lives on Midwestern farms are vividly but plainly told The lives were never easy but they became cruel during the Depression and the Dust Bowl The awful choices farmers had to make when the Federal government so clumsily decreed killing off livestock so that meat prices would rise are poignantly portrayed Farmers whose total beings were dedicated to care of livestock and creating abundant dairy and wheat to feed the nation were ordered to slaughter and to dump milk and cropsTo say would reveal the carefully crafted plot I highly recommend this novel
