Homestead Reviews


Reviewer: A reader from Old Greenwich, Connecticut , Sept 1999: This is an outstanding book. Lippi has an extraordinary ability to make you feel that you know these women. Her descriptions are so touching and evocative. I couldn't put down... even the second and third times I read it. I've encouraged everyone I know to read this excellent book and every single person loved it! GIVE IT A TRY! You won't be disappointed. Reviewer: A reader from New York , June 10, 1999: The women in these stories reminded me of the women I grew up with in rural Minnesota. The external details are different (and engrossing) but I still knew and understood and came to love them. I am reminded of Alice Munro. Reviewer: A reader from Newton, MA, October 12: HOMESTEAD is a beautiful, blossoming novel that will summon you back again and again. The stories are like pieces to a puzzle - unique and individual, but when joined together, complimentary in their own purposeful way. The result is a very poignant and vibrant image that stays in your mind's eye long after you've closed the book .
