LITTLE GALE GUMBO, Erika Marks's debut novel, was a delight from start to finish. Did it help that the novel is set principally in Maine, one of my favorite places? Sure. Did it help that there was lots of jazz and mouth-watering descriptions of delicious Louisiana food? Sure. But in the end, it's the story, and the characters, that matter - and here Erika Marks succeeds brilliantly. She has created a tale rich with intrigue, heartache, and secrets galore, and in the Bergeron family she has created a memorable and all-too-human trio of strong women. With a cleverly structured narrative the author pulls the reader deep into the story and then refuses to let go. The result is a deeply satisfying, rewarding read. Highly recommended.
