Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "A Thousand Acres" come the memoirs of Lidie Harkness of Quincy, Illinois, who marries an abolitionist from New England and settles in Kansas in 1855. When her husband is murdered, Lidie vanishes into Missouri to find his killers.


Review:

"Smiley has a lot of fun spinning her goofy, quick-draw characters around the patient Lidie...The cleverness that Smiley brings to bear on her story, the marvelous facility of her writing...--these seem to portend a deepening, even to beg for one. But...whatever possibilities there were for the novel to gain moral purchase are lost when Lidie abandons her always weak hold on principles....Lidie completes her adventures in a state of world-weariness flecked with self-pity."

Scott Malcolmson, New Yorker, 04/06/1998

Review:

"The intricate emotional analysis for which Smiley has become justly celebrated, tracing characters' feelings as they fluctuate and evolve with the precision of fine needlework, is much in evidence in 'Lidie Newton'. She is as adept at capturing the subtle nuances of relationships as she is at chronicling complex political activity. This is a gripping story about love, fortitude and convictions that are worth fighting for regardless of the outcome."

Heller McAlpin, Los Angeles Times Book Review, 04/05/1998

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 210 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. Six years after her Pulitzer Prize-winning best-seller, A Thousand Acres, and three years after her witty, acclaimed, and best-selling novel of academe, Moo, Jane Smiley once again demonstrates her extraordinary range and brilliance.The novel, set in the 1850s, speaks to us in a splendidly quirky voice--the strong, wry, no-nonsense voice of Lidie Harkness of Quincy, Illinois, a young woman of courage, good sense, and good heart. It carries us into an America so violently torn apart by the question of slavery that it makes our current political battlegrounds seem a peaceable kingdom. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780449910832
