Here’s an amazing reader review of Warren County Days. It certainly warms my heart.
Diane has a profound flair for character, and time, and place. Her subtle touch is more Hemingway than Faulkner, light graces of tint and texture that color Opal’s experience of people, porch, and parade.
Opal’s world is cicadas, southern pine, brown dirt, and strangers with agendas. She’s cautious–timid, some would say–but wise without knowing it. She probes instead of plunging but, with all her awkwardness, she embraces the life that swirls around her.
You won’t forget Opal.
