My rating: 4 of 5 stars
an absolutely wonderful example of Southern fiction. The characters are amazing and I became invested in them. They each had such personality and likability. The story was amazing. So tragic and yet sweet. I hated for this book to end and want to know how Larry and Silas finish out their lives. I'm a Southerner and the dialog was spot on. So many times when writers write Southern language they exaggerate it. Tom Franklin got it just right. I'll definitely be looking for other books by this author.
