Critic Reviews

"The rural North Carolina dialogue and 'carny' talk are perfect, especially descriptions of food, fashion and enchanting scenery of Indian summer in the South. The author draws family relationships so clearly you feel you could melt right into the crowd for barbecue, biscuits, slaw and cobbler." (Publishers Weekly)
"Maron's appealing story races forward at breakneck speed, taking full advantage of familiar characters and both real and fictional locations." (Library Journal)
