The House With The Wraparound Porch by Mary Pat Hyland @cailinAolain

Along an elm-canopied boulevard rising from a quaint Finger Lakes village stands a magnificent Queen Anne-style house. In the summer of 1920, when Mame McGrath and her family move in across the street, she notices a catatonic young man rocking on its wraparound porch. Mame, a newly hired elementary school teacher, proclaims boldly that she can, and will, restore this man’s psyche—devastated by a drowning in Keuka Lake. What she doesn't anticipate is that he and this house will become the center of her life.

The House With the Wraparound Porch weaves a riveting tale of the four generations to whom this home becomes more than a shelter from life’s storms. It houses their memories of triumphs and failures, of joys and sorrows that ripple across nine decades. Though many will move on, this house will always be a part of them, because it resides always within the deep heart's core.

What readers are saying:

"This book captured my heart from the very first chapter!"

"I love MaryPat Hyland's books. This one is the best by far! I hope there are sequels to this book."

"This is a lovingly written family saga spanning nine decades, and a joyous tribute to the Finger Lakes region of New Yorkand the families that have been there for generations. The characters are real and familiar, and so are the issues and choices the various members of the family face."

  1. Thanks so much for the post, Donna. This book is very special to me, based on the home of my grandparents. I think all will enjoy meeting the McNamara sisters.
