Paretsky gives her first "stand alone" novel a strong sense of place and what life would be like as a farmer and the descendant of one of the area's 3 founding families. It is a book of extremes - Nanny and Arnie Shapen are extremely right wing Christians, bigoted, judgmental and hateful; Susan Grellier, a manic self-indulgent wife and mother who just made me tired and Gina, a newly divorced Wiccan bisexual transplanted from New York and Gail, a burned out alcoholic & homeless hippie who is crazier than a bedbug. Living in a very small city in the midwest, I find truth stranger than fiction and this novel is not as far fetched as one would assume. While it's not my favorite book, it will be remembered because of it's extremes.
This book was recommended in my Bible study as a wonderful story and it was! It is a quick, uplifting read and I highly recommend it!
