Miller's Valley

Mimi. Book club members looking for a novel with a huge cast of characters, interesting family relationships and prose that describes the setting with clarity, should consider Anna Quindlen’s novel, Miller’s Valley. Quindlen presents the life of Mimi Miller, whose family has farmed on low lying ground in Pennsylvania for generations. The small town faces dramatic change as the valley will be flooded by the government after the land is taken by eminent domain. The joining of people and the places where we live can make for great reading, and Quindlen drew me into the lives of these people in this place. I was thoroughly entertained by all the ups and downs of their lives, and found Mimi to be the perfect protagonist for this novel.
