Thanksgiving, by Ellen Cooney
One family. One table. One meal. 350 years.

This dramatic, highly inventive novel presents the story of one family through many generations, as Thanksgiving dinner is prepared.

This is history that comes fully alive, for we become part of the family ourselves, sharing their fortunes and tragedies, knowing their truths from their lies, watching their possessions handed down or lost forever. All along, in the same house, in the same room, Morley women are getting dinner ready, one part at a time, in a room that begins with a hearth of Colonial times and ends as a pres...
