Just discovered this talented author & her well written slightly southern gothic and extremely well crafted debut novel. My southern roots run deep but I have to say Alabama has more kick ass women than any of my Florida family.

Heartburn by Nora Ephron
"Entertaining, especially as an audiobook (performed by Meryl Streep). Not much in the way of plot but nonetheless a fun and quick read. Since the book was written in 1982, it's interesting to look for signs of how society has changed. Two big ones..." Read more of this review »

I loved this book. At times I felt like Augustus McRae & Woodrow Call would round a bend on horseback and this story might be a sequel or tandem story to Lonesome Dove. Both are set in the 1870s post Civil War Texas. At the very least I feel cert ...more
