Marsha Moyer's description of emotions is out of the box. She leads the reader to look at emotion in a differant way, which may help bring some resolution. Such as: "it might be possible for love and grief to live side by side, like a pair of old cats, crotchety but familiar, each keeping to its own end of the porch". In the last paragraph of the book there is a beautiful way to come to terms with the past. Lucy is a new widow, when a man came to her in a storm, she describes him as "glorious contraband that had washed up in my bed". On every page there is origional thinking. This book is shot through with humor. I know these people, I came from a small town. This is Marsha Moyer's first novel. Lucy's story continues through four books. There are many fully realized charactors and rich story lines. I have the last two yet to read, I am sure that I will wish that the story will not end with the forth. These stories are satisfying and provide much to think about.
