Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

Stockard Griffin awakes from a nightmare to find that her Uncle Abe has committed suicide, causing her to move from Sefer Farm, the family’s retreat just outside of Nashville, to New York City. Later she attends Stanford, and finally settles in Boulder, where her decisions put her at odds with her grandmother’s upbringing.

Stockard’s grandmother is the legendary Margaret Griffin, who discovered as a child “that the Old South still saw her as ‘baseborn.’ There was nothing she could do about it, and once she realized it, she found in herself something more independent and fierce.”

Margaret Griffin rescues the family lumber business in 1920s Tennessee using the native wits that a Vassar veneer cannot suppress. She emerges as the ruthlessly capable protector of her family.

Fifty years later Stockard must sift through her grandmother’s actions as a businesswoman and a wife. It is a strange and particular obedience that allows her to reconcile the family’s past with what lies ahead.

A Particular Obedience is about three generations of powerful Southern women.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Pageturner - A Really Good Read 27 febbraio 2010
Di K. Alice - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This book is the rare literary fiction that is also super engrossing. I read it in two days and couldn't put it down. It follows the journey of several related Southern women throughout the 20th Century as they find their way through life. You won't find out what the title means (which is VERY different than what you'd expect) until navigating the twists & turns at the very end of the book. It ties up the whole saga nicely. What is amazing is just how unpredictable the plot is. It's the opposite of formula and keeps you guessing until the very end. One quite enjoyable feature is the author's knowledge and ability to steep you in several different geographic areas of the U.S. during specific times: the hippies upheaval of the late 60's in the Bay Area, the fallout from the Civil War in the South, the various cultures that formulated modern-day Boulder, Colorado as our heroines experience them.

Above all, the book is what we bookworms long for most: diving into a story that is deep, revelatory and fascinating. This very picky reader highly recommends A PARTICULAR OBEDIENCE.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Chick Story that reads outside the box 14 settembre 2009
Di C. W. Miller - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I picked this book up for my wife and then got laid up with a back injury. So I just took a peek at the first chapter and what a page turner it became. The characters start to evolve and before you can say "Cat in the Hat" you're hooked.

Three generations of women experiencing power, sex, drugs, and guns. If I didn't know better I would say there is a Country Western Video to follow.

David did a great job making me feel right at home on the porch. He taunted me with nightmares and secrets. It all comes together in the end and a life lesson learned.

4.0 su 5 stelle A story that grows 11 settembre 2009
Di A. Cooper - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I can't quite put my finger on it, but the way Nanney-Ward created the
characters, I really found the them interesting and wanted to know what
would happen to them. The story grows on you.
