The Daughters of Erietown Reviews

  • Carol
    This novel drew me back to my teenage years in the early 1970’s, portraying the tension between what we wanted for our lives, what was expected, and what was offered to us. That is the essence of coming of age, no matter your gender or era, and the daughters (and sons) of Erietown grapple with ...

    In her first novel, Connie Schultz weaves together strands of the lives of three generations of women living in a rural Ohio town steeped in both tradition and challenge. At the heart of the story is Sam, first in her line to go to college. She blooms in the imperfect household of Ellie and Brick, t...

Family dysfunction abounds with alcoholism, physical abuse, teen pregnancy, adultery, shattered dreams, regrets and resentments and it was predictable. All of this realistic, but it made fo...

    I really wanted to love this, but I was underwhelmed. Too many characters, too little focus, and far too much telling rather than showing. The constant shifting perspective made it difficult to get too invested in anyone's story and forced relationship dynamics to fall flat. I was also disappointed ...

    I love Connie Schultz and I was really eager to read her first work of fiction, but this was so bland and unfocused. It felt like she was trying to touch on many different issues that the impact was diluted. The main thrust is supposed to be what it was like for blue-collar families in the 1950s and...
