MEDIA REVIEWS
A thoroughly enjoyable sequal toWorthy's Town...Rolens is a subtle narrator...A balanced and evocative saga of everyday American life after the war. * Kirkus *
Take[s] readers well beyond their usual comfort zones...Something within expands when you read about them [the characters]. -- Susan Salter Reynolds * Los Angeles Times *
Many readers...will immerse themselves in this community of quirky and perverse characters. * Library Journal *
As warm and enjoyable as its predecessor, Rolens' second novel is a pitch-perfect depiction of small-town life. -- Kristine Huntley * Booklist, (American Library Association) *
Rolens' recreation of rural postwar America is honest and warm. * Publishers Weekly *
#5 Regional Best seller * Denver Post/Rocky Mountain News *
The author is resourceful enough to entertain her readers with a well-built window on a vanishing world...The graceful entraces and exits of her various story arcs create a pleasant rhythmic flow of local scenery, much like the well-preserved 1924 Moon Chevy that Drayton coaxes back to running form. -- Leeta Taylor * Foreword Reviews *
The author...propels the plot forward, and she gracefully weaves in details that give the novel its strong sense of time and place. -- John Hinkemeyer * Rocky Mountain News, (Denver) *
The depiction of rural, small town America, with its dramas and quirky characters, is an engaging story. * Lima News, (Oh) *
Rolens has matured her characters in this sequel...Once again Rolens skillfully evokes a small-town life in an earlier era...[Old Kane] is still a place to be viewed with affection...I hope Rolens revisits these characters a third time. -- Ellen Keith * Historical Novel Society *
