Beschreibung

"Haunting. . . . Had Henry David Thoreau the chance, he would be happy to quote Jane Brox."
-Michael Kenney, The Boston Globe

Amid the turmoil after her father's death-decisions to be made, the future of the family farm to be settled-Jane Brox, using her acclaimed "compassion, honesty, and restraint" (The Boston Globe), begins a search for her family's story. The search soon leads her to the quintessentially American history of New England's Merrimack Valley, its farmers, and the immigrant workers caught up in the industrial textile age.

"This is a clear-eyed and cogent history of farming, immigrant life and one American family written in prose that sparkles like the Merrimack River once did."
-Publishers Weekly

"A mature, levelheaded book, thick with emotion but not overwhelmed by it. It is short but dense, and reading it . . . is a genuine pleasure."
-Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post

"This is quite beautiful music, the sound of a family's life that keeps ringing in a daughter's ears."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Five Thousand Days Like This One is a superb book."
-Yankee Magazine

Jane Brox's first book, Here and Nowhere Else, won the 1996 L. L. Winship/PEN New England Award. Her work has appeared in numerous journals and magazines, and has been represented in Best American Essays. She is a frequent contributor to The Georgia Review. Jane Brox lives in the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts
