I may be a fan...
I even recognized a character from one of her previous books. Sometimes it is nice to read a book populated with interesting characters that is about friendship - with a little romance, and a little earth magic (for lack of a better description).
In my reviews, I find I try to capture more of the feeling I had when I read a book, rather than give a blow by blow summary of what happened. I am not sure why I have chosen this path - perhaps it has been an unconscious choice from all the literary reports I wrote during my undergraduate degree. I also think you can go to amazon or chapters for lots of plot and summary reviews, and I tend to express whether or not I enjoyed the book, or to relate something that moved me. This was a pleasurable read, and I enjoyed the picture of a southern town with it's hidden history and relationships between women. The writing isn't too ornate, and the reads are quick, and each of the three books I have read by Allen have all been enjoyable.
