Free shipping for media mail rate within the U.S. on orders over $ Our Lady of the Prairie Loved, loved the writer's command of the English language and wry approach to what life threw her way. I will definitely read other books by her. In this specific book, I felt she led with a strong first third of the story, began to seriously lag in the middle, but rallied a bit in the last third of the storyline.

    Written with a keen wit and clever turn of phrase, Thisbe Nissen's Our Lady of the Prairie looks at what happens when a 50 year old woman with a life that looks like it will finally be stable after years of upheaval with a very challenged daughter discovers the "love of her life" and jumps into an affair with all the enthusiasm of a teenager who has just discovered sex. Thisbe Nissen is the author of three novels, Our Lady of the Prairie (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, ), Osprey Island (Knopf, ), The Good People of New York (Knopf, ), and a story collection, Out of the Girls' Room and into the Night (University of Iowa Press, , winner of the John Simmons Short Fiction Award). She is also the co-author with Erin Ergenbright of The Ex .
