Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Rodgers prose flows with the clarity and ease you d expect from a writer who taught English for 25 years at Brevard Community College. A warning: the historically accurate use of the n word and similar slurs may offend some readers, but sugarcoating the language would have destroyed the realism of the novel. Though Kate s observations and angst occasionally feel a tad repetitious, the novel s portrayals of Southern culture and the layers of power, intrigue and class in small town America ring true. With memorable characters and strong plot, this literary novel is well worth reading. Since it is also a mystery, the story should appeal to a wide audience. -- Donna Meredith "Tallahassee Democrat".
