Store pick: Valentine is a powerful debut novel that takes place in the oil fields around Odessa, TX in the 70s at the beginning of the oil boom. It is about racism, violence, good ole boys who stick together and most of all about the misogyny that existed and was accepted at the time. It is the story of 5 women and children and how the brutal rape of a 14 yo Mexican immigrant affected each of them. The brilliant writing will keep you enthralled even as your heart breaks for the way women are treated and dismissed. -Nancy M., store volunteer Signed by author.
