The Rock Orchard: A NovelThe Rock Orchard: A Novel by Paula Wall

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


An off-beat and sometimes racy (sexy) Southern read; one of the best southern novels I've read to date. More real, earthy and gritty, less sugar sweet and cliched than many southern reads. These characters will linger with me. (If you offend easily when it comes to 'sexy' stuff or sometimes colorful language, it may not be the read for you!)

Sounds interesting. I'm not a huge fan of so-called southern fiction, but I like that you said this one is more real, less cliched.
