Mary Ellen Chase - Windswept

15. Windswept by Mary Ellen Chase (1941)
Length: 440 pages
Genre: Historical Fiction
Started: 11 March 2011
Finished: 17 March 2011
Where did it come from? From a Library Book Sale
How long was it on my TBR pile? Since 11 March 2011
Why do I have it? I like historical fiction and Mary Ellen Chase is a new author for me. 

Philip Marsten - a sailor - buys a majestic plot of land while sailing around Maine in the 1880s. He builds a beautiful house he names Windswept that becomes the ancestral seat of the very prominent Maine family. This is the story of the Marsten family, covering from the 1880s to the beginning of World War II. I enjoyed this story although it was a little longwinded. I generally like books about houses and family relationships. I give it an A+!

A+! - (96-100%)

Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a newbie as far as book blogging goes, having been blogging at my daughter's blog for only about two and a half years. Now it's time for me to get my feet wet on my own. Please be gentle with this blogger. Love to hear from you all. Have a great day! :)
