Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse by Faith Sullivan

Nell Stillman’s road is not easy. When her boorish husband dies soon after they move to the small town of Harvester, Minnesota, Nell is alone, penniless yet responsible for her beloved baby boy, Hillyard. Not an easy fate in small-town America at the beginning of the twentieth century.

In the face of nearly insurmountable odds, Nell finds strength in lasting friendships and in the rich inner life awakened by the novels she loves. She falls in love with John Flynn, a charming congressman who becomes a father figure for Hillyard. She teaches at the local school and volunteers at the public library, where she meets Stella Wheeler and her charismatic daughter Sally. She becomes a trusted friend and confidant to many of the girls in town, including Arlene and Lark Erhardt. And no matter how difficult her day, Nell ends each evening with a beloved book in her hands.

The triumphant return of a great American storyteller, Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse celebrates the strength and resourcefulness of independent women, the importance of community, and the transformative power of reading.

Hard to put down once you enter Harvester, Mn. Not a sweet and happy little town -- so entirely realistic! Nell is the friend every woman needs ( and the grandma every kid wants).

She is now my favorite author. I finished all of books and like what Mr. Wodehouse is to her, she is to me. I hope Harvester MN will live on in another book. I absolutely love the characters and the realism. She has characters you love and hope for the best for them all. Mrs. Stillman is a woman everyone should have in their lives. Great, great book!
