I read this because I really like Elizabeth Strout's writing. But this first book was a bit different from her later writing. One reviewer compared it to Peyton Place in terms of the gossipy small town characters and that struck a chord with me. ( )

I seem to be awash in mother-daughter books and media -- first [Chouette], second we are watching *The Gilmore Girls* this winter (not bad), and now [Amy & Isabelle]. All are fraught in various ways, in two of the three the mothers are single, got pregnant 'by accident' at 16-17 and in the third the mother might as well have been. Here, isolation is central and, as the daughter reaches adolescence the strain increases, until, inevitably the connections breaks. Amy knows nothing about her parentage, her mother has kept the story a secret. When she gets involved with her math teacher (who is a sh** but . . . while Strout is not kind but she is fair to him) there is an inevitability to this as well; the implication being that the secret that Isabelle hides from Amy condemns them all to this scenario. The best parts of the book take place in the business office of the paper mill where Isabelle has worked for fifteen years and are made of the interactions, conversations, etc between the women who work there together. These lifted the book to another level for me. Amy's friendship with Stacy also rings true. A good solid story with some fine moments. ***1/2

quote: Isabelle towards the end, as the drama plays out: " the starkness" of what she had done "bothered her the most. What we do matters is a thought Isabelle had again and again, as though, just now, well into adult years, she was figuring this out." yep. Not rocket science, and yet, hard to hold onto.

That bit of advice and Don't keep secrets, they'll come back around and bite you in the butt are the lessons. Strout is nothing if not a New Englander! ( )

Isabelle Goodrow lives in a small cottage in Shirley Falls with her teenage daughter, Amy. Isabelle works as secretary to the head of the local mill. She longs for more, from him and from life itself. But her real concern is with and for her daughter. Yet her daughter is also filled with longing, and in the absence of better guidance bestows her affections on the substitute math teacher, Mr. Robertson. Both women are naive and vulnerable in their own way and their disappointments, when they arise, complicate their already entwined lives. Surviving this unbearably hot summer in Shirley Falls is hard to conceive. Surviving life itself is even harder.

Elizabeth Strout’s first foray into the lives of the denizens of Shirley Falls is a sprawling, sultry novel of awakenings. Young Amy is unprepared for the emotions and sexual yearning that she is about to encounter. But Strout suggests that none of the residents of Shirley Falls is prepared in any real sense for the events in their lives. Is unpreparedness the condition of all life? Perhaps. But more to the point is the differing ways in which each of responds to these contingencies. Both understanding and misunderstanding our closest and dearest. And yet somehow, for the most part, we muddle through.

Very easy to recommend. ( )

about daughter & mother relationship. mother doesn't want her daughter to make the same mistakes she did. instead of understanding and empathizing, she tries to control her daughter. eventually, her daughter gets involved with her math professor, get caught and the mother finally confides that she did the same and thus was really and unwed mother.. instead of discussing with her daughter, she is more afraid of the shame brought on them. all ends well at the end ( )

Mutter-Tochter-Romane laufen schnell Gefahr, ins Triviale abzudriften, aber Strout gelingt es, diese Klippen zu umschiffen, indem sie sich nicht klaustrophobisch auf ihre Hauptfiguren konzentriert, sondern zugleich das Porträt einer Kleinstadt entwirft, deren Bewohner mit den vielfältigsten, ganz eigenen Stolpersteinen des Lebens umzugehen haben.

It was terribly hot that summer Mr. Robertson left town, and for a long while the river seemed dead.

Some thought the world might be coming to an end, and even those women not inclined to go that far had to admit it might not have been a good idea sending men into space, that we had no business, really, walking around up there on the moon.
But the heat was relentless and the fans rattling in the windows seemed to be doing nothing at all, and eventually the women ran out of steam, sitting at their big wooden desks with their legs slightly apart, lifting their hair from the back of their necks.
"I can't shut up for five minutes," she said, and Amy, keeping an eye on the clock one day, found this to be true.
Here was something new to fear—her daughter's pity for her ignorance.
What followed was something that Isabelle would speak of only once, years later, when her life had become a very different one. Amy, on the other hand, would later in her adulthood tell a number of people, until she realized finally that it was one story in a million and ultimately didn't matter to anyone.
