----------------------------------------- Set in the conformist 1950's and reaching back to span two world wars, Ellen Baker's superb novel is the story of a newlywed who falls in love with a grand abandoned house and begins to unravel dark secrets woven through the generations of a family. Like Whitney Otto's " How To Make An American Quilt " in its intimate portrayal of women's lives , and reminiscent of novels by Elizabeth Berg and Ann Taylor. " Keeping The House " is a rich tapestry of a novel that introduces a wonderful new fiction writer.
When Dolly Magnuson moves to Pine Rapids , Wisconsin, in 1950, she discovers all too soon that making marriage work is harder than it looks in the pages of the " Ladies Home Journal " . Dolly tries to adapt to her new life by keeping the house, supporting her husband's career, and fretting about dinner menus. She even gives up her dream of flying an airplane, trying instead to fit in at the stuffy Ladies AID QUILTING CIRCLE. -------------------
