Olive Ann Burns died of cancer before she could finish this sequel to Cold Sassy Tree. Reading her notes about how she wanted it finished and learning about her process was fascinating to me and, although I found it a shame that the novel could not be finished (I'm sure she was MUCH sadder than I), I still enjoyed reading her editor's thoughts on the kind of person she was. I adored Cold Sassy Tree, and this is nowhere near the kind of book that was, it's a different experience that stands on its own. Olive Ann Burns must have been a classy woman.
