Kimberly’s August Recommendation

The Year We Left Home by Jean Thompson

“This novel chronicles an Iowa family from the 1970s to the present.  I loved the structure of this book with alternating viewpoints and  gaps of time between chapters.  Some of the characters are just my age (!) and I think the author really captured the bits and pieces of the ’70s and ’80s–the Vietnam War fallout, the bicentennial, the farm crisis– while still centering on the timeless challenges of family life. ”
