Reviews of Keeping the House

Reviews of Keeping the House by Ellen Baker are pouring in, courtesy of the ever-vigilant Dave Lull. Here are some links:

"Ellen Baker and her fabulous debut novel KEEPING THE HOUSE recently kept me from doing too many things I should have been doing, but I loved every minute of it. In these pages you’ll meet the Mickelsons–a sad, fascinating, resilient family. Their story spans from the late 1890s to 1950 and it’s full of family secrets and regrets and characters you’ll carry around with you long after the final line."

  1. It is a very good book; I finished it last week and today (I hope) will write my review of it for a future issue of The Inquirer.
    It’s an old-style book — family saga going through generations, anchored by a place (in this case, a house) — and its bulk ensures you’ll be with them for quite awhile yourself.
    Frankly, I find it amazing that this is the author’s first book. She writes very well.

  2. Glad to know that you enjoyed it, Susan. I like “unfashionable” books. I’ll look foreward to your review.
