9780060760250: Charms for the Easy Life

A family without men, the Birches live gloriously offbeat lives in the lush, green backwoods of North Carolina. Radiant, headstrong Sophia and her shy, brilliant daughter, Margaret, possess powerful charms to ward off loneliness, despair, and the human misery that often beats a path to their door. And they are protected by the eccentric wisdom and muscular love of the remarkable matriarch Charlie Kate, a solid, uncompromising, self-taught healer who treats everything from boils to broken bones to broken hearts.

Sophia, Margaret, and Charlie Kate find strength in a time when women almost always depended on men, and their bond deepens as each one experiences love and loss during World War II. Charms for the Easy Life is a passionate, luminous, and exhilarating story about embracing what life has to offer ... even if it means finding it in unconventional ways.

This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

About the Author:


Kaye Gibbons is the author of four previous novels: Ellen Foster, A Virtuous Woman, A Cure for Dreams, and Charms for the Easy Life. She lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, with her husband and five children.

From AudioFile:

Narrator Kate Fleming introduces us to three curious women from the backwoods of North Carolina. Folk healer Charlie Kate; her daughter, Sophia; and granddaughter, Margaret, share the stories of their lives together from the turn of the century through the 1940s. Fleming voices the soulful humor and gumption of these free-thinking, strong-will women. This is a story of mother/daughter relationships, love, daring, and persevering in a time and place when resourcefulness was a necessity.
