it was amazing
Read in October, 2009

Don’t let the title series fool you. You don’t have to be a Texan to enjoy this book! I will admit I first misread the date; I was thinking it was a historical novel set in Texas, but it was set in 1977. A very fickled era of inter-racial situations, a lot of darkness with addictions and such. A very heavy read BUT I loved it! You can really feel the passion in this book — the heart wrenching struggles of addictions and the joy of letting God take hold of your life. I think Mary did a great job with book and I really felt like I was there. I loved the depth of the characters and the pain she put into them. They were believeable and you just wanted to shake them silly!

One of my favorite quotes is “Death paralyzes saints and sinners alike.

If you’re looking for a different read that will wrench your heart into knots than scream out with joy this is your book! I was totally impressed with it. I give it a full five stars and than some!
