Recent Comments "Mountain Laurel"
I got this book at a thrift store and read it on an flight from Idaho to Hawaii. By the fun old-school cover, I assumed it was a mystery. I was oddly surprised to find that it is no where near a mystery! Regardless, I enjoyed this simple story. I liked the old fashioned writing style and phrases. I only give it three stars because it even though it was good, it wasn't great. It's just a simple story about a naive girl who learns a life lesson.
I loved it! It was first pulished in 1948. It's about a young girl in Appalachia learning to weave to bring in extra money to support her family. Meanwhile, her father is courting a woman Laurel and her brothers and sisters don't like. Also she is trying to get medical help for a younger brother's disability. it's full of mountain lore and ways.I read the 1960 edition.
This made me count my blessings; I have a lot of them. It shows an apparently good understanding of young people in the Appalachian Mountains in the late 1940s. I felt the heroine learned a lot about life, and about human nature.
