Set in the latter 1920’s in Louisiana, the author took me, a high country desert dweller, into the swamps and waterways, into a world quite foreign to me. His evocative use of language made this story from the past seem very present. The novel is layered with meaning and truth and challenges for readers today.
It will be a long, long while before I forget the Reverend Hale Poser. I highly recommend this book.
