  • Mainstreet review

    By coozoe
    This book has as much dialog as narrative. The ideas explored and human struggle were written with true mastery and deep understanding of not only men but also, surprisingly, women.
  • Well Written Painful For Me To Read

    By Fpiano
    Very well written. I can see why it caused such a fuss in the author's home town. For two years of my adult life I lived in a small prairie town in Iowa and believe me I can completely sympathize with Carol, although I know she is naive and to self centered.
