    • A quaint, charming story of the each month in life of Mrs. Appleyard's whose children are grown. I picked up this book at a used book store. It was a fun little read while the snow falls outside.


    • I know, I know. This looks like the lamest old book ever. Yet after enjoying the clever, gentle humor of the commentary in Mrs. Appleyard's Kitchen I was intrigued enough to find a cheap copy of this book. Truth to tell, I was thinking it might be good to read to my mother-in-law (she suffers from slight dementia and so far Cheaper By the Dozen is our favorite to share together on my visits).At any rate, as I was looking through this I found myself continually pulled into the story and laughing. [...]


    • 4.5 stars. Mrs Appleyard is a hoot. Written in 1941, this book goes through a year in the life of Mrs Appleyard at her home near Boston and summer home in Vermont. Each chapter talks about one month in the current year, but also reflects on years past. I loved the description of sick kids in February staying home to make valentines, the story of a village who sent all its men to fight in the civil war, and the December description of the different ways Mrs Appleyard and her husband open Christma [...]


    • Set your barometer to this book, written with wit, warmth, intelligence, and self-effacement. Compare it to the stuff of our present-day Great Cultural Decline. Kent’s works hide in used-book stacks, and, like time capsules, have no expiration date.


    • Mrs. Appleyard is what would happen if Anne of Green Gables was a Bostonian in her forties or fifties, during World War II. There's a similar level of fancifulness that's been harnessed to raising children (most of whom are young adults by the time of the book) and refinishing old furniture.It's thus the ultimate comfort read for me, since it's whimsical without verging into twee. Mrs. Appleyard is also, in some ways, the Peg Bracken of her era: for all the crafts and pies, she's equally capable [...]


    • This book was a beloved best seller during WWII. It's not about the war at all, but a semi-autobiographical view of a typical year in peacetime by a upper middle class wife and mother in Boston's Back Bay. The book was in fact such a warm part of so many American's lives that it spawned an entire career for the author of Mrs Appleyard cookbooks, many of which were also bestsellers in the 1950s and 60s.


    • Kent's alter ego, Mrs. Appleyard, describes the month-by-month events of her year. It's not exactly a novel, nor are the individual months short stories. Clearly, it's based on Kent's own life, but not enough to call it non-fiction. Danged if I know just what it is, other than a relaxing comfort read about a quiet life in Vermont.


    • This is not the book I read. I read Mrs. Appleyard and I by the same author, printed in 1968. It was a very entertaining, autobiographical book. It was a good book from which to read a chapter before sleep. does not have Mrs. Appleyard in its lists of books.


    • A unique world view that is give in short accounts that match up the months of the year. Fun collection worth the read (or listen).




    • As you'd expect, being her year, each chapter corresponds to a month, so I read each at the start of the right month. Cute book - charming and funny!
