I have to admit that my expectations were a bit high before I started reading. My ENG111 teacher spoke highly of this writer which prompted me to go to a workshop lecture by the author so I was psyched to read something by her. The writing style changes throughout the book as well as switching the first person character telling the story. If you can handle this I think you will enjoy the book. The main character is certainly interesting and goes through many trials yet makes it through them all albeit not unscathed. I would have liked to have a little more about what *really* happens and why, to here husband. With so much else explained in detail I felt that this major event was left hanging a bit. But I did enjoy reading it and it did keep me up past my bedtime several nights in the week it took me to read it. If you like settings in the old South you'll probably really like this one.
