Wonderful author

by ard601comcastnet on May 22, 2010

I think it would make a great book for a book club. There is so much material for discussion. I thoroughly enjoyed this book

Can't believe this book won awards

by BibiophileBarb on Nov 19, 2009

I finally just put this book down when I was near the last quarter of it. It was tiresome, and going nowhere. It beats the relationship between mother and daughter to death, and just wouldn't let it go. I felt no affinity to either woman. The book was a tiresome, nonstop bore.

Not her best, but very good

by Bolingbrookbookie on Aug 24, 2009

Elizabeth Strout has become one of my favorite writers. Her last book, Olive Kitteridge won the Nobel Prize for fiction. Isabelle & Amy takes an honest look at a mother daughter relationship of a "single mom." Strout expresses herself beautifully and has a good sense of humor. THis book will make you laugh and make you cry. I always find that at least one of her characters is someone I know.And others I want to know.

Sweet natured

by Selina on Oct 13, 2007

This book explores the problems between mother and daughter. Isabelle is shy and lonely, haunted by her past mistakes. She tells everyone that she is a widow when in fact she was never married. She keeps to herself, concerned with only making a comfortable life for her and her daughters. She eventually makes friends, changing her life for the better. Amy, the daughter, also makes a friend. Unfortunately its with an older teacher. Isabelle does not want Amy to make the same mistakes as she has done. This book does well fleshing out the character of mother and daughter.
