NY TIMES BOOK REVIEW:
This isn't the old south of tangled prose and gothic characters. This is the south where...people know who they are, and where good family recipes are handed down. Mary Ward Brown writes like a woman offering warm, homemade bread."
Small town days and nights, telling passions beneath the surace of quiet lives, the Deep South of today, where change comes with threat and promise. This is the south of Mary Ward Brown, who writes with the unerring eye, ear and heart of one who has witnessed the passage of generations, and has captured in her powerful stories the timeless emotions that never change.
