Review by: Sheila Deeth on April 07, 2014 :
Good-hearted farmer falls in love with fallen woman and offers a new life. It’s been written a hundred times before, but not like this. Here the farmer’s as wounded as the woman he loves. The woman’s the one with a care (albeit fairly distant) for church and its trimmings, while the country farmer finds no solace there. Bad guys might be good. Good guys might sin. And the demon drink’s no more evil than any other human failing.

The characters feel genuinely real and conflicted in this tale. Miscommunications are a side-effect of honest care, not defined by the plot. And simple solutions are too complex for real emotion. The dialog’s peppered with genuine humor and fun. The tragedy’s seasoned with hope. And the future beckons in a story that’s quick and easy to read, pleasing to digest, and enjoyably different and real. America just after WWI has never seemed so vivid or so real.

Disclosure: I bought a copy of this a while ago and it languished on my to-read shelf. I’m just sorry I didn’t lift it down sooner, because it’s a really good book!
