As a result of their circumstances, they lean on each other heavily and create an unconventional family, along with Ione, Patty Jane's mother-in-law, who is the strong but silent rock that the sisters lean on.

A good antidote to the vitriol swirling around social media these days is the reliably funny prose of Lorna Landvik. There is no venom in her writing, just big-hearted observations by hilarious characters making their way in a world that is sometimes tragic but always hopeful. Landvik’s 1997 novel,”Patty Jane’s House of Curl,” about a hairstylist and her escapades around Minneapolis — particularly West River Road, Seward and the Chain of Lakes — is a great place to start.

Patty Jane gave birth to Nora, and since Thor didn't return, his mother, Ione, assisted with Nora. When Patty Jane realized she needed to support herself, she opened "The House of Curl" where she provided women with perms, hair cuts and styles, and Ione provided baked goods and coffee for the women to enjoy. The House of Curl became a gathering place for women particularly after they added educational classes for everyone's participation.
