Blackbird House

In his memoirs of his travels in England, Nathaniel Hawthorne was homesick for his native Massachusetts produce: “I never ate an English fruit… that could compare in flavor with a Yankee turnip.” That unexpectedly tasty Yankee turnip now plays an important role in Alice Hoffman’s Blackbird House, 12 intricately connected stories set in a farmhouse on the tip of Cape Cod that trace the history of the farm’s inhabitants over 200 years of American storms and tragedies, and celebrate the strength and endurance of women.

In the first story, “The Edge of the World”, set during the British blockade of the Cape just after the American revolution, fisherman John Hadley becomes “fascinated with turnips, how hardy they were, how easy to grow, even in sandy soil”. After John and his two young sons are lost in a May gale at sea, his widow Coral turns her back on the ocean, and plants turnips alongside acres of sweet-peas “strong as weeds” in the farm he has built for her.
