Acquired via BookCrossing 22 Apr 2006 – BookRelay

Hm. I do like this author and was pleased to discover her a year or so ago. But as I read more and more of her books, some of them do seem too sunk into the Southern Gothic theme and a bit overblown and turgid. A bit like her descriptions of the South, so it kind of makes sense. I found this a lot to wade through and wasn’t really that engaged with the story – but I didn’t know I was going to feel like this when I requested it on the relay, of course!

I’m going to release this – perhaps at the Salcey Forest OBCZ as it has a nature title and is about a forest!
