    Oh Joy, It's A New Lorna to Enjoy!

    I laughed, laughed again, laughed louder and longer as the book raced by. Please don't let it stop, I want this story to go on indefinitely! Lorna Landvik's latest is a true laugh riot, except when it's poignantly sad and a bit heartbreaking. Now, I admit I'm a card-carrying member of the Lorna fan club dating back to Patty Jane's House of Curl but her latest rivals Angry Housewives as the best yet. As the story opens, we're all back in high school in the early 1970s. I don't know about anyone else, but I'd swear Lorna and I must have been in the same class doing the same insane things. How did we ever survive unscathed? Book clubs who have enjoyed Landvik's earlier works will find much to discuss in Mount Joy -- religion, politics, family, friends, food, travel and children all abound. Finally, I really want to shop at Joe's grocery to win a contest, view Darva's art, have a tea party with Flora and hate Kristi and every other high school girl just like her. Terrific cast of characters that we've come to expect from Ms. Landvik. Don't miss the reference to Patty Jane and the description of the waitresses at diNapoli! I couldn't read this fast enough and I hated to see it end. Now I'm already waiting again!!

    If you like Lorna Landvik you won't be disappointed with this offering. An interesting story with some twists and surprises. The end just sort of ended, but that's often what happens when you get involved in a story. A fun read all around.

    My book club loved it!

    While a few of us thought it started off a little slow, we all agreed that this was a great book. Wonderful story line, great characters, all in the fabulous style of Lorna Landvik!

    Lorna Landvik does it again!

    I love Lorna Landvik's writing and this novel did not disappoint in that area. While I did not love the Kristi character, I did like the others. I think it would be a great book club read!

    Very Disappointing!

    I have read and loved all of Lorna's books EXCEPT this one! View from Mount Joy was so disappointing! I hope this book was more of a fluke than a new style of writing she will be adapting! She has always been able to make the characters come to life without such trash talk and graphic negative behaviors. I have purchased copies of her other books for friends and they have loved them but will NOT be purchasing another copy or recommending Mount Joy! I do NOT recommend this book.
