1 Vinegar Hill Ansay, A. Manette
Paperback. Softcover 1998 Perennial. Superclean; no marks. Spine and some pages CREASED. 256pp. Language: English. Oprah's Book Club selection. '[T]his novel is about gritty small-town life in Wisconsin. Ellen along with her unemployed husband, James, and their 2 young children, Amy and Herbert, have returned to live with her in-laws, a bitter and narrow-minded couple, irascible and tough as the farm life they've endured, carefully cloaking their dark secrets. For Ellen, the pressures of her teaching job and raising a family often collide with life in this morbid household, and her marriage to a distant man, still under his father's thumb, is crumbling. It doesn't help that when James does find a job, it is as a salesman of out-of-date farm machinery, which keeps him on the road. But in the end, Ellen triumphs over a multitude of domestic and marital problems to grasp her emerging sense of self. Ansay writes with a diamond clarity tempered by compassion.'--Theresa Ducato, Booklist.
