"Set deep in the mountains of Virginia, the Grundy of Lee Smith's youth was a place of coal miners, tent revivals, mountain music, drive-in theaters, and her daddy's dimestore. It was in that dimestore--listening to customers and inventing adventures for the store's dolls--that she became a storyteller. Even when she was sent off to college to earn some 'culture,' she understood that perhaps the richest culture she might ever know was the one she was driving away from--and it's a place that she never left behind"--Dust jacket flap.

As a fellow Hoosier, I enjoyed this romp through small-town life. You can see where the author gets her material: "write what you know!" and I look forward to reading her other books. There is drama, fun and interest in every day life and readers can relate to it!
