It's taken me a while to get into this 1954 classic, The Dollmaker by Harriette Simpson Arnow, as I struggled with the Kentucky dialect. It's set in the very rural, very poor Kentucky hills but soon the family will move to Detroit and things will change so much for them. In 1971, Joyce Carol Oates described this novel as "our most unpretentious American masterpiece"
