Sue’s January Recommendation

Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner

“An old favorite, Stegner’s Pulitzer prize (1972) book is the beautifully written story of Lyman Ward, a distinguished (but disabled) historian studying family documents in order to write a book detailing the story of his pioneer grandparents.  In researching the saga of his headstrong grandmother and steadfast grandfather, a couple whose marriage lasted in spite of tremendous adversity and tragedy, he comes to learn that he might not be a total victim in the demise of his own marriage.  I have read this book many times and each reading unearths something new as I reflect on it’s flawed, but very human characters.”
