The Daughters of Erietown by Connie Schultz

Reviewed by Holly (Library Patron)

This is a book that explores life in a small town in Ohio during the late 1940s, and covers a generation of time. The characters are woven together and developed by their actions and the impact of their choices. The story is told primarily through the character’s dialogue. And while I felt that product names may have been a technique to draw readers in and add authenticity to the time period, I found it often came off as a way to describe the scene. As such, it made the book seem more like a movie script than a novel. The plot was a bit too much of a soap opera for me. That being said the story had a good amount of twists and turns. Overall I would say the book was just o.k..
