Publisher's Summary

Comic Lorna Landvik gives Garrison Keillor's Lake Wobegon a feminine perspective with her story about Patty Jane and Harriet Dobbin, two wacky Minnesota sisters. Patty Jane's downfall is to marry the gorgeous but irresponsible Thor Rolvaag. Before she can say "annulment," a baby is on the way and Thor is gone, leaving Patty to rely on sister Harriet. It would be Patty Jane's entrepreneurial spirit that moves her to establish a beauty shop, her House of Curl, which evolves into a support group and community workshop over three tumultuous decades. Gently humorous and peopled with eccentric characters, Patty Jane's House of Curl is a heartwarming, deeply satisfying experience.

Critic Reviews

"Fun and funny, spiked with tragedy and sad times." (USA Today)
"Patty Jane's House of Curl has the emotional warmth of Lake Wobegon and the tender/tough female characters who populated Fried Green Tomatoes... A unique story." (St. Paul Pioneer Press)

Makes me want to get a permanent wave!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I had previously read this book and loved it so much that I decided to revisit it in audio format. Loved it just as much the second time around.
