Editorial reviews (3 reviews)

Warren gives [small town life] her own twist with humor as dry as the sand dunes of the Little Snake Hills that border Juliet and with gentle compassion for her characters...

Wry and beautiful book about ordinary people with intricate lives and complex relationships trying to navigate their way through a landscape that keeps shifting and reinventing itself.

Warren clearly has an intimate understanding of smalltown life, and infuses Juliet with plenty of heart.
