I have to admit that it has been several days since I finished reading this book. But I needed to wait and absorb all of the emotions that I experienced while traveling through the pages. This is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time.
The characters are so well developed and I fell in love with them. My heart overflowed as I got to know Moab Sheriff, Winston Browne; his friends, Jimmy Abraham and Eleanor Hughes; young people, Buz Guilford and Jessie. There are lots of topics covered, including terminal illness, alcoholism, cult mentality, love, loss, friendship, etc.
One of the reasons I loved this book so much was that I had laugh out loud moments and then times when I literally sobbed out loud. It was such a pleasure to read a good clean fun book that focused on small town life and the relationships that had existed for years and new ones that developed slowly and deeply.
And then you add in the occasional “Moab Social Graces” newspaper column and you cannot help but roll your eyes and chuckle.
I cannot say enough positive things about this book. I loved it so much that I purchased more books by the author. I strongly recommend you put this at the top of your to-read list!
