I love all of Sandra Dallas' books...especially Alice's Tulips and The Diary of Mattie Spenser.  I loved Persian Pickle too!

Sandra Dallas is an awesome writer. I've read most of her books, but I think I enjoyed Persian Pickle the most. Can't wait to read Tallgrass.

I enjoy Sandra Dallas too. Great characters and I like her writing style and themes. My book club has read and enjoyed The Persian Pickle Club and the Diary of Mattie Spenser. We have Alice's Tulips on our agenda for this fall.

I just found Sandra Dallas by listening to Prayers for Sale on CD.  LOVED IT!  I am looking for Tall Grass from my library but I hope that reading her books will equal listening to the one on CD.

I loved New Mercies (I think this might be my favourite Sanda Dallas book, to date) and Tallgrass as well as Diary of Mattie Spenser!

I read The Chili Queen first and the sequel (re-appearance of some of the same characters) New Mercies and I was hooked on this author.  She can really tell a story.
