Item description for Hope for Carsonville by Erin Q. Hartman...
The stories swirl around Hope Quinlan, the bright matriarch and lovable soul whose fierce independence, love of a drop now and again, and huge heart, guide her twelve offspring through high adventures and low heartbreaking events, like the house fire, chickens in the upstairs closet, the abandoned house game. These are TRUE experiences of Erin Quinlan Hartman's childhood, who was inspired to tell her story when a small child appeared at her bedside one night and told her to write her memoir.

Fantastic Book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sep 26, 2007
I would highly recommend this book. It is a collection of short stories that will make you laugh, cry, and remember things from your own childhood. When I finished the book, I flipped it over to the beginning and started reading it all over again! I cannot wait for this author to get her next book out!

SIMPLY AMAZING! I'll admit, I'm partially biased: my aunt Erin wrote this book, but I read a lot and know great writing when I see it. Outsiders might not comprehend our tight family bond, but read the stories and share in the laughter, tears and memories.
I'm just waiting for the sequel, when she shares her adventures babysitting her favorite neices.
I LOVE this book!!!! Sep 15, 2007
First, I have to admit that the author is a friend, and that I read a lot of the book before it was published. But it IS a great book. Her family was dysfunctional, but she shows how a child can grow up with love and faith despite a less-than-perfect, non-suburban, non-Yuppie childhood.
Parts are hilarious and parts are sad. It's a lot like real life.
I have read a lot of books, and highly recommend this one.
