Patty Jane's House of Curl

I just read a great 'chick lit' book by Lorna Landvik called Patty Jane's House of Curl.  Isn't that a great title? It's one of Ms. Landvik's older titles but it's excellent. Set in the 1950's we follow the lives of sisters Patty Jane and  Harriet. These two are very close and share many joys and sorrows throughout the novel. Right away we learn that Patty Jane's husband disappears well into Patty Jane's pregnancy. Years later Patty Jane receives mysterious notes from him along with $50. As for Harriet she meets the love of her life right away, who just happens to be a millionaire. He seems too good to be true. Turns out he is. There is lots more to tell about the Patty Jane and Harriet but I won't give too much away.

I've also read Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons and really enjoyed it too (a popular book club read). But Patty Jane's House of Curl was even better. Check it out! Let me know if you like Lorna Landvik's work.
