Patty Jane's House of Curl--#19 finished

A book about a couple sisters that overcame a tough childhood and then had their own unusual struggles in their lives as well.  Patty Jane's husband disappeared before their first child was born.  Harriet's fiance who was very wealthy, died in a plane crash.  Harriet kind of checks out of life & into a bottle and prostitution.  Eventually she is saved to only develop lung cancer & die.  Somewhere in all this Patty Jane's husband is discovered having a brain injury and living with a crazy woman--crazy woman commits suicide once found out though.  Just a bit too much and characters seem too far out there.  Mixed feelings on the book, not a bad read but just too much crazy not likely stuff going on too.  

I have posted it on PBS, it was the 50th copy of the paperback, I didn't check how many hardback copies but I am sure a bunch there too.  With an interesting title someone ordering something else may throw it in too.  If not might pick off in a couple months & donate away.
