During the Reign of the Queen of Persia PDF

Joan Chase

A multigenerational family drama about grief, motherhood, and coming of age, all taking place on an Ohio farm.

Joan Chases subtle story of three generations of women negotiating lifetimes of joy and ruin deserves its place alongside such achievements as Marilynne Robinsons Housekeeping and Alice Munros Lives of Girls and Women.

The Queen of Persia is not an exotic figure but a fierce Ohio farmwife who presides over a household of daughters and granddaughters. The novel tells their stories through the eyes of the youngest members of the family, four cousins who spend summers on the farm, for them both a life-giving Eden and the source of terrible discoveries about desire and loss. The girls bicker and scrap, they whisper secrets at bedtime, and above all, they observe the kinds of women their mothers are and wonder what kind of women they will become. But always present is the familys great trauma, the decline and eventual death from cancer of Grams daughter Grace.

A powerful story about family ties and tensions, During the Reign of the Queen of Persia is also a book about place, charting the transformation of the old hardscrabble Midwest into the commercial wilderness of modern America.
