Read Maude by Donna Foley Mabry Online


In 1906, I was barely over fourteen years old, and it was my wedding day. My older sister, Helen, came to my room, took me by the hand, and sat me down on the bed. She opened her mouth to say something, but then her face flushed, and she turned her head to look out the window. After a second, she squeezed my hand and looked back in my eyes. She said, Youve always been a good girl, Maude, and done what I told you. Now, youre going to be a married woman, and he will be the head of the house. When you go home tonight after your party, no matter what he wants to do to you, you have to let him do it. Do you understand?"I didnt understand, but I nodded my head anyway. It sounded strange to me, the way so many things did. I would do what she told me. I didnt have a choice, any more than I had a choice in being born....

Maude Reviews

  • Angi

    I Loved this biography with a hint of fiction about this lovely character Maude whom was born in the late 1800's. My own grandmother had talked to me about the Great Depression era but I never realized or understood much about until I read this! This was written by Maudes very own grand daughter-Donna. My own most favorite grand mother past away in January of this yr and just last week- I paid tribute to her memory/birthday via Facebook . This story was very enlightening and sad of the lost chil ...more

    This was a Free Kindle book that I read based on the many good user reviews it received. It's a realistic portrayal of a woman living in hard times - and boy, was her life miserable and depressing. The writing style is amateurish and the characters are very two-dimensional. Lots of religious undertones but that didn't seem to have much bearing on the main character's negative thinking/behavior towards some of her children and others. The story was too depressing and didn't provide much insight o ...more

  • Jennifer Kentner

    An interesting story but poorly written.

    This was a fascinating story that gives a lot of detail about a woman's life from the early 1900s to her death in the latter part of the century. It was an easy read but there could have a lot more proofreading. There were several instances where it was unclear what was happening.

    A sad story

    I gave this book three stars because I wanted to set it down several times. It was plain white rice for most of the way through but I kept reading nonetheless. It's just a sad story, much like many people's lives suppose. If I can take away anything it would be to never settle for just existing. Live, love, take chances, accept change and challenge. Never ever settle.

  • Marin Santorsola

    This is an incredibly depressing, yet also highly-readable book. It's a heartbreaking account of the everyday tragedies and joys of a woman so representative of the women of her time and place who lived just barely above America's poverty line. It's insightful and sad, but its honesty makes it enjoyable. That being said, I need to read a lighthearted book about puppies and sunshine next to shake off the melancholy of Maude.

  • Alaine


    Amazon suggested this to me based on my interest in something else, and it seemed like something I'd be into, so I went with it. It's not a terrible book. The writing is simple, but I could easily hear my 92-year-old grandmother in her words. My grandma grew up in poverty during the Depression and didn't finish high school till she was a grown mother of grown children. If she was to sit down and write her story, it would be a good story but not a work of literature. My grandma is f

  • Patricia & Stephen Woitkowski

    Amateurish biography

    Although I generally like this type of story, it was too repetitious. I was getting depressed reading about this poor woman's sad life of poverty, pure slog work, and general unhappiness. I realize that this reflected the times that she lived, but could the woman get a break?! I'm surprised that she didn't just up and leave her family--it couldn't have been worse. Don't read this unless you like being depressed. Even the end of her life stunk.

    I just finished this book 10 minutes ago. What an epic story of American life! What an emotional roller coaster. I just wish it had ended on a happier note. Maude was inspiring in the way she kept going. She was such a decent, resilient person, but after a certain point, her efforts to withstand setbacks weren't enough. The book ends on a down note, and yet, I feel as if I have done something patriotic by reading it, by witnessing her life as told by her beloved granddaughter, Donna Mabry. And o ...more
