    Paperback Þ The Quickening PDF À quickening free, The Quickening MOBI35 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 don't particularly like each other One has healthy children and the other does not which deepens the divide between them But they live on neighboring farms so they associate out of necessity and sometimes help each other And sometimes not The husbands Frank and Jack are also starkly different personalities They mostly just tolerate each other And sometimes not Tensions build between the two families as the har

    Paperback Þ The Quickening PDF À quickening free, The Quickening MOBIThis 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 quiet 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 people never experience joy forgiveness laughter a moment's peace? It was as if Hoover sifted through the many years this b

    Paperback Þ The Quickening PDF À quickening free, The Quickening MOBII can usually tell within the first few pages whether or not I’ll love a book With Michelle Hoover’s novel The Quickening I knew from the first line The voices of Enidina and Mary two Iowa farmwives bound by their struggle to survive in the lonesome upper Midwest on the cusp of the Great Depression are that real and charged with emotion Right away it was clear that I was in capable hands with this debut authorReading The Quickening I was r

    Paperback Þ The Quickening PDF À quickening free, The Quickening MOBII picked this book up at a launch held in Cambridge in June 2010 I always want to support local artists My expectations did not extend to the level that this book held It is a fabulous read with a quick flow of words and an engrossing story It is written from the point of view of two complex farmers' wives and their conflicting perspectives on the truth with the hardships of farming war The Great Depression and drought as a mere backdrop There is some typical epic like drama secret affairs and farming accidents and the switch in point of view and chronology from chapter to chapter was hard to follow at times Some of the allusion in the prose lost me For example she hugs a rabbit her sons left on the porch Its eyes went black Does this mean it died in her arms? Did it sense evil? Good for discussion I s

    Paperback Þ The Quickening PDF À quickening free, The Quickening MOBIThis 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

    Paperback Þ The Quickening PDF À quickening free, The Quickening MOBIBeautifully written so well told It's the story of two Iowa farm wives beginning in the early 1900s and then on through the Depression The chapters alternate their two voices as their shared story is revealed The descriptions of farm life during the Depression are unbelievably real and evocative There's a scene in which Enidina describes the work of slaughtering a hog the mess the stench the hard work of it all it was just beautifully written But what made the novel great at least for me was the way it attempted to explain people's reasons for doing hateful things and further the way the people who survive those hateful acts go on living in spite of them The loss of children literally and figuratively plays prominently in the novel and it's interesting to see the disparate ways the two women deal with their respe

    Paperback Þ The Quickening PDF À quickening free, The Quickening MOBIWOW 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

    Paperback Þ The Quickening PDF À quickening free, The Quickening MOBIHoover'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 of the women's lives The men one quiet one
