I loved this book of family dynamics. This southern tale of poverty, tragedy, personal failure, and the elusive second chance is vivid and compelling. The primary voice is that of Easter, an amazing twelve year old girl who has matured far beyond her years. Baseball fans will probably appreciate added dimensions of the home run quest so central to the events. Any true fan of southern literature should not miss this book.
Greenville author Shirley Proctor Twiss will celebrate the launch of her third novel, From Myra to Laura (paperback, $19.99), which takes Myra into her later years when she must create a new life without her husband by her side.
This event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served.
