I loved these books and read them in order. You learn so much about Appalachian people and the zone they live in. No one has much but they are always willing to offer what they do have to support others. These 3 books shows their kindness to others and even people they don't know. I think you should read these books. It will give you a amazing feeling about people again.
eviews > Erma's Attic: Angels of the Appalachians Book 2Erma's Attic by Deanna EdensErma's Attic: Angels of the Appalachians Book 2by Deanna Edens (Goodreads Author)F 50x66Linda Husvar's review Dec 27, 2016 · editit was amazingRead from December 11 to 14, 2016The author used PhD- student Annie's voice to give us the "back stories" of Erma and Ida's lives from Book 1 of "Angels of the Appalachians". They championed women's right to vote and the horrible conditions coal miners face each work day. The journal Erma left in her attic, gave Annie deep insights as family secrets, including a life-long love story, were revealed. The best news was learning that Erma and Ida were real-life people. We were treated to detailed historical facts at the end of the book. Recommended as one of the best Appalachian novels ever published.
Although this is the second book in the Angels of the Appalachians series, it can be read as a stand alone book. The writing flows very well and the transitions between time periods are well done. Sit back and have fun while learning a small about the early 1900s, before women could vote and before unionization.
I absolutely LOVE Deanna Edens' writing style and all the research she puts into her books. Cannot wait to read Book 3 in the series. The characters have so much depth. I can see them in my mind totally. Always a message. I am writing down Will' s interpretation of the Ten Commandments--priceless and so easy that I can hear and feel GOD OUR FATHER and HIS ANGELS Smiling!!!! When the books in this series end I can't stand it!!!!! Love these people. Hold writing Deanna Edens-- you are one unbelievable story teller with depth and meaning.
Erma's Attic provides us another opportunity to visit with Annie and Will, the delightful characters whom we first met in "Angels of the Appalachians." After losing their dear mates Erma and Ida, Will and Annie are trying to deal with Erma's estate and while involved in this process they explore extra evidence of Erma's and Ida's exploits as they traversed the difficult lives and journeys of living in the historical period in which they lived. This story is told with wit, humor and compassion. Take another trip into the lives of these unbelievable "Angels of the Appalachians." Erma’s Attic is a very enjoyable historical read!
I really have fun the history in Deanna Eden's books. I didn't like history in school but if it were taught like this I believe I would have paid attention. I live in the attractive state of West Virginia. Thank you for your books.
In reading this I could picture every person. In this mother was brought up in the South and knowing the hardships with 13 kids yet the love they had and community with caring and lending home and heart to others, I saw that here. Today we can all learn something of this. Beautiful.
As much as things change they stay the same. All she would need to bring this book up to date is a chapter on how to deal with kids who don't phone but will text or Fb before they talk to their parents face to face.
Erma trains her sharp and hilariously funny sights on self improvement books. Topics like bringing romance back into marriage and advertising’s impact on behavior, relatable funny stories about her kids, shopping. She references books she’s read or that are recommended to her mixing them with life experiences to churn out one laugh after another. Lite and relaxing, inducing a chuckle and laugh a minute. Read and have fun the inimitable Erma Bombeck.
I read Erma Bombecks books as a young mother and laughed at all her wild stories of family life. It was refreshing and fun to re-read this a lot of things have changed since this book was me would say progress, but I'm not so sure
I enjoyed this spoof on the self-help crazes from my childhood & early adult years. Erma Bombeck was always one to create me laugh & I required something light & rib tickling. It hit the spot. The gentler humor, lacking in "comedy" these days, was like a breath of new air in an old fuzzy robe & bunny slippers. Aunt Erma reminding us to not take ourselves too seriously.
Erma Bombeck has tickled my funny bone for most of my life. A contemporary of my mom's generation, we shared her newspaper columns amid laughter and wisecracks. This book brings back a chunk of time when every well-known author knew just enough psychology to obtain themselves in trouble. I'm glad her humor lives on.
It is a guarantee that you will laugh, the belly kind, when you read any one of her books. This was one of the few I had not read yet. Oh, and it did not disappoint. I am just very sad she is no longer e globe is in a poor put but a small genuine humor (and not the shocking kind that makes you ashamed for laughing), but the kind that fills you with joy, makes it a small bit easier to handle each day.
Always did obtain a kick out of Erma Bombecks writing. Kindle ver was excellent and complete. On occasion it seemed like maybe a page was missing, but I found it wasn't really missing after I went back a couple of pages and then went to where I left off. I found that the "missing" page was there. It may not have downloaded properly or something.
Erma Bombeck was a delightful humorist in the 70’s and 80’s. This book reflects the lives of that age, of the transitions women were making in this era. Her writing makes it possible to look at what it was like for women at this point in time.
