A Thousand Acres, by Jane Smiley

Read and reviewed in January, 2014. Released later

A family drama loosely based on Shakespeare's King Lear. A man with three grown daughters suddenly decides to divide his 1,000 acre Iowa farm between them. The daughters and sons-in-law have ambitious plans but things don't go as hoped. I found it heavy reading and a bit depressing.
