    I first read this in 2000, when I was thinking of returning to my native Ohio after living away from it many years Since my premiere dive into Santmyer s town of Tecumseh, I ve read cover to cover at least nine times I ve now befriended this book so thoroughly that, on any given day, if I m restless and in dire need of comfort, I can grab it, open it, and begin reading exactly where I opened it without being lost as to what came before I know this book better than any other that s passed in fron [...]

    I read And Ladies of the Club by Helen Hooven Santmyer years ago and quite enjoyed getting the women and their lives, so when I saw this book, I decided to revisit the author s works.First printed in 1925, Herbs and Apples not sure of the significance of the title , is largely biographical, but still manages to surprise.It is the tale of Derrick Thornton, a young woman coming of age in small town America in the early part of the last century Derrick has literary aspirations from a young age and [...]

    This is Santmyer s first novel, written in the 1920s, and re published after the success of And Ladies of the Club This novel in no way approaches how wonderful ALotC is, but you can see the development of Santmyer as a writer from this first novel I found it interesting that though this book is written from a first person perspective, the narrator spends most of the novel describing the childhood and life of another character While I look forward to re reading ALotC one day, I don t think I ll [...]

    This is actually not that good a book, but I liked it because of the way she wrote about her life, well under cover as one of her characters There was a reality about what was going on that felt accurate, like being part of her history Her description of her education or how it felt to be part of the War, seemed the way it would have really been and that was interesting to me.

    By the same author as ladies of the Club , however this book is not nearly as captivating Once the characters are in college I was became caught up in the characters themselves, however the plot did not keep me interested.

    While And Ladies of the Club is her ultimate favorite of mine, I enjoyed exploring all of her writing and liked eveything I read ALotC though is a five star plus while the tohers I liked well enough but didn t find thme life changing or interrupting as CR s gail would have termed it.

    One of my top favorite books is And Ladies of the Club by Santmyer, so I chose this book hoping for of the same And Ladies it is not, but it was worth reading It was the first novel she wrote and was autobiographical.
