Davis parallels the dark economic times with a growing crisis in the MacNeill family. Now 10 years married to solid, dependable Douglas MacNeill, she is overwhelmed by mental illness. Douglas makes frequent recourse to a whisky flask.
The Stubborn Season
The writing is clean, direct, and efficient; but for the first third of the novel, The Stubborn Season can be tough going. Margaret and her struggles gradually move from being merely pitiful and unpleasant to interesting. Remarkably, in spite of such dire circumstances, Davis makes us believe that the following generation can come through the Depression with little damage, still trusting and resourceful, and stronger for having lived through this grim, stubborn season.
