This is one of those "little remarkable" books that sometimes fall into your hands. I'm glad that I found this book, even though at first I really didn't want to read it.
It's about a woman journalist,Karen Valby, who comes from the big city in search of writing about small town life. She arrives in Utopia Texas, and begins her "journey" into the world of 4:30 a.m. coffee, farmers,cowboys and other ruffians she meets in this small Texas Hill country town.
I liked this book right from the start, and maybe that's because I can visualize some of these characters that seem to jump off the pages of this book. There is an integrity and a sense of emotional honesty that pulls the reader right into the daily lives of these people that is heart warming and real.
