The Cape Ann by Faith Sullivan

A disarmingly involving portrait of a family struggling to stay together through the Great Depression, The Cape Ann is an unforgettable story of life from a child’s-eye view.

Lark Erhardt, the six-year-old narrator of The Cape Ann, and her fiercely independent mother dream of owning their own house; they have their hearts set on the Cape Ann, chosen from a house catalog. But when Lark’s father’s gambling threatens the down payment her mother has worked so hard to save, Lark’s mother takes matters into her own indomitable hands.

I picked up this book on reccomendation from another book I looked up on B&N. If you like a good story, well told -- this one is for you! The story revolves around several characters in a small Minnesota town and, although it takes place in the depression years, so much of it seemed familiar with things that happened when I was growing up in the 50's. The things they cooked, the feelings of family as different 'disgraces' come along all had a familiar ring. I was sad to see the book end and hope Ms. Sullivan will write a sequel sometime to let us know about Lark, her parents and her Aunt Betty. I will definately purchase more books by this author!

I absolutely loved this book! I have been tired for a few days because I couldn't put it down. Lark was a funny, outspoken child. Read it. You won't be disappointed.

This is such a cliche, but I did not want this book to end. The author HAS written a couple of sequels/spinoffs to this book but, be warned, they are disappointing. Your best bet is to re-read the original. Lark Ann and her mother, Arlene Erhardt, will live in your heart and imagination and you will sigh and cheer from cover to cover!

What a lovely book. The characters are so real; I truly miss them. Our 8 year old narrator, Lark, is such a beguiling and captivating little girl with, at once, charmingly child-like observations and explanations and sophisticated observations and muses. The imagery in this book is so real, I think I could draw the town out on paper, and I would recognize the characters if I were to see them on the street. A really wonderful read. I beg the author to write a continuation!
