The plot concerns a year in the life of Chris, who lives with her Aunt Merle and Uncle Ed in a small Kansas town during the depression, and the impact that the new schoolteacher, the glamorous urbanite Evelyn Ryan, has on her household and inner world.
Chris is a girl of peculiar curiosity and intellectual resilience, always aspiring beyond her rural peers and elders, and as Ms. Ryan brews up a scandal and Chris's best friend and Uncle both have to deal with serious health issues, Chris's inner world grows as she begins to bridge the gap between childhood and "addylescence". The lessons learned are subtle and thought-provoking, and the world and characters are extremely well-drawn.
Carson's prose is a joyous experience, smooth and elegant, and while the plot points never rise above domestic scuffling you'll never notice it, as the details and character of the book are extraordinary. NYRB Classics or Virago should seriously consider reprinting this, as it's never been reprinted since the late 's, and it deserves a much wider audience. See all reviews.
