  1. I just reread this lovely short book while I couldn t sleep this week.Nancy Peacock, local to my area, writes lovely spare little books with a strong sense of place Action follows character and each character is written so consistently and beautifully that her books seem to unfold like flowers instead of being a series of events.


  2. What a sad strange book I started out not really liking it but then it started to grow on me It had a good character and an interesting storyline.Cedar was born in an old farmhouse to her mother and a man named Sol who had chosen her mother to have his baby Her mother, still bereaved from the loss of her brother in the Vietnam war went along with the idea But as the years passed and Cedar grew, she discovered that it was too hard to live with this pot smoking man who did nothing and left with Ce [...]


  3. This book was especially fun because it takes place in the Chapel Hill area Easy to read but not fluff Coming of age story in the 1960s, I think is what the description says It draws you in enough to finish in one sitting I like it because of the bittersweet ending I may try to read some of Nancy Peacock s other stuff.



  4. I came upon this book in a used book store and was drawn to two things 1 the author was local and had been thanked as a support and help by another author that I enjoyed2 the story takes place very close to where I live That being said I read this very short book in one sitting and found the descriptions and the characters well created and real The story is told by Cedar as she recalls life with her mother who is exploring what the world may have to offer As they settle for the second time at Tw [...]


  5. A very quick read with a few instances of brilliance, I was less than impressed with this book about relationships during the seventies There are two examples of very real, raw human emotion, always between mother and daughter, but the rest of the relationships seem to be flat, and one dimensional, despite the fact The book lacked a compelling plot line and while the premise was promising growing up as a hippy in a commune in an isolated house with no running water , Peacock failed to deliver.


  6. loved this book such an easy read read it in about three days loved the characters loved this time in our history Loved how the little girl did not know she was poor and was sad that her sister would not know the times of running to the out house and watching the hawk get mice shows us that the simple things are so important in life and we take them for granted.


  7. This was a well written young adult novel It made the unconventional, wonderful The narrator made you want to live her life The novel told of growing up during the Vietnam War era and one family s journey through life The characters are interesting and handle real life situations This was interesting and made me think a lot.


  8. Interesting jaunt back into the days of communes, simple living, back to the land Ideal optimism the real imperfections that are part of all lifestyles Quick read, took about three hours in one sitting.


  9. Picked this up because I enjoyed Peacock s memoir, A Broom of One s Own, and because it takes place on a commune Good story I would read of her work, and now I want to read about communes.


  10. Peacock s writing style was engaging but I felt the characters were kind of tired To be fair, I knew it was a book about hippies when I checked it out, so I should have known what to expect What I liked least was the tidy ending What I liked most was Cedar s voice.


  11. I finished this in an evening I just couldn t put it down The author s writing style is appealing and she is a strong storyteller Reading about Cedar and her extended family was a true pleasure Can t wait to read of Nancy Peacock s books.


  12. I really enjoyed this little book It was deeply felt and so visual I could see and feel the characters as they hurtled along time and place Wonderful story of a mother and daughter during a vivid time I remember well.


  13. I enjoyed this books, especially after reading A Broom Of Ones OwnI could see a lot of her own story woven into the book.Very well written





  14. This was a nice surprise, as it was chosen by pulling a random book off the shelf heading to library check out Probably 3.5 stars.




  15. I could picture so many aspects of this heart tugging novel characters, setting, the culture and times Thanks, Nancy for bringing me back to my southern roots.



  16. A very quick read about a life as a hippie I believe I read the book in about 2 hours It felt like I was reading someone s diarybut interesting.
