Staff Reviews


I think the 3 generation sweep makes for an extremely satisfying read. Masterful prose of rural life deeply observed. Highly recommended! The 1st in her “Last Hundred Years Trilogy.”

“With a novel as expansive and rich as the fertile farm grounds of Iowa, Smiley returns to the Midwest. Fans of her Pulitzer Prize-winning A Thousand Acres will welcome this homecoming, the sweeping story of Walter and Rosanna Langdon's lives from 1920 to 1953. Memorable events - the Dust Bowl, the Depression, the McCarthy hearings, the Korean War - are all intertwined with the roller coaster of farm family life. The first volume in a planned trilogy, Some Luck is a celebration of the American family set against the backdrop of the land that will become the 'bread basket of the nation.'”
