Description: Centering around a Minneapolis beauty parlor that also functions as a women's support group, this novel explores the loves, losses, hopes, and victories experienced by Patty Jane and Harriet, two eccentric sisters

With a baby on the way and without her husband Thor Rolvaag, Patty Jane Dobbin must rely on her irrepressible sister, Harriet, and before long, the Minnesota sisters open up a neighborhood beauty parlor where women can come together when life threatens to tear them apart. Reader's Guide included. Reissue.

1. What kind of childhood did Patty Jane and Harriet have? How has their childhood affected the course of their adult lives? 2. Why is Thor terrified by his impending fatherhood? Do you think he was really ready to embrace it before he disappeared? 3. The private investigator hired to track Thor down remarks that the good-looking never seem to have close friends. What do you think of this statement? Is there any merit in it? 4. Why does Patty Jane refuse anesthesia when she is in labor? Discuss the various reactions to her behavior during labor. 5. How would you describe the family that Patty Jane and Harriet create for themselves? Discuss the families that we are born into and the ones we create. 6. How do Ione and Patty Jane navigate the dangerous currents in their relationship? Do you think you could do the same in a similar situation? Would you want to? 7. The characters in this novel use Patty Jane's House of Curl as a place to unburden themselves. What other places might people go to share their problems? Would you like to spend some time at the House of Curl? Or do you already have a House of Curl in your life? 8. Why do you think Avel's sisters hate him so much? 9. What do you think provoked Esme Ames's change of heart? Discuss how it can take a loss to make people value what they have as opposed to what they do not have. 10. Harriet says that 'too much thought scared her, that she was happier doing than thinking.' Why do you think she feels this way? Do you agree? 11. Harriet's decision to face the ghosts from her past almost costs her her life. What do you think separates those who hurt themselves in the face of great pain from those who are able to channel their demons more constructively? 12. Why does Patty Jane finally let Harriet go down the dangerous path she has chosen? What does it cost each of them? Do you think Patty Jane made the right deci-sion by letting go? 13. Why does
