Reviews of The House With the Wraparound Porch by Mary Pat Hyland

SAMANTHAJULIA reviewed on Oct. 26, 2014

The House With The Wraparound Porch, a novel by Mary Pat Hyland, opens in 1920 and ends in 2005 and tells the story of four generations of a family from New York's Keuka Lake area. The author brings to the reader a beautifully told saga filled with rich details and memorable characters. The heart of this story is family and the complex relationships within it. By using smooth prose, each character comes alive and the reader becomes engrossed in their quest for their own identity.
I found this to be a heartwarming story and well worth reading.

A good enjoyable family saga, compete with a picture of Fried Cakes at the end to leave you salivating late at night. A read again type of novel.
