Historical fiction about the iconic Depression-era picture of this woman on the cover as photographed by Dorothea Lange. Names and circumstances have been changed in a compelling story of grit and survival. ( )

Wow! What a book. I, like many I am sure have "stopped seeing" the famous photo by Lange. A great novel and loved the connections between the characters. Makes you think about the past in a different sort of way. ( )

I loved this book. The premise was fascinating and so believable that I had to keep reminding myself it was fiction. Nearly everyone has seen the photo Migrant Mother taken by photographer Dorothea Lange in the 1930's. In this novel author Marisa Silver imagines a story around these two women, their lives and their hopes, and how they came to intersect on the side of the road - resulting in this iconic photo. Adding a present day male historian who is also connected to Mary Coin (the woman in the photo) brings another level of depth to the novel.

In addition to the plot, the personalities, and a family secret, the author realistically recreates the life and lifestyle of the migrant worker during America's Great Depression. Juxtaposing this gritty, hardscrabble realism with the philosophical question asking "What is a photograph and what does it actually capture?" is one of the special qualities at the heart of this novel.

I thought this book was wonderful. It was a beautiful telling of the life of two women who had such an impact on history. Though it is fictional and not the true story of these two women I still thought it was worthwhile. I have now discovered I want to know more about the actual photographer, Dorothea Lange. I love when a book is so good it makes you curious about the subject it was written about. Definitely worth reading. ( )

This historical fiction has three story lines which converge at different points to create a wonderful story of struggle, poverty, survival, humanity during the Great Depression of the 1930s
Mary Coin is the wife of migrant worker Toby coin in the dirty thirties in California. They have 6 children when Toby dies of pneumonia.
Walker Dodge is a modern day social history professor in California who likes to unearth personal stories by searching through archives, garage sales and libraries. His family owned fruit orchards near Porter, California.
Vera Dare is a photographer hired by the federal government to take photographs of migrant workers so that their plight during the depression can be captured and aid provided for their survival.
The story is a fictionalized account of photographer Dorothea Lange’s photograph of migrant worker Florence Owens Thompson. The photo became the face of poverty and struggle of migrant workers and made Lange famous.
The writing is so well done, the characters so well developed, the emotions and thoughts so well described that this story although sad, was a pleasure to read. ( )

If you stand right fronting and face to face to a fact, you will see the sun glimmer on both its surfaces, as if it were a cimeter, and feel its sweet edge dividing you through the heart and marrow, and so you will happily conclude your mortal career. Be it life or death, we crave only reality.

Everyone wants to be known. Perhaps the ones who conceal themselves most of all. The question is: Who is foolhardy enough to go in search of them?
