On Agate Hill

On Agate Hill

by Lee Smith

Dale Israel: This is not my usual type of book but I thought it would be a "light" book to take on vacation. I have read Lee Smith before and always enjoyed her writing. On Agate Hill is a story that takes place at the time of the Civil War up in North Carolina. It is written in the form of a diary which made for an easy read. Molly Petree is the protagonist in the novel and you follow her life--all of her trials and tribulations-- from childhood up through old age. The book was okay for what it was...a late summer read, but nothing more. It kept my attention and provided insight into life during a critical time in history. It was a pleasant way to pass the time while enjoying the mountains.
