I read this book in 2006 and loved it. I recommeneded it to my f2f book club and everyone that year. I'm glad it's been discovered. I am in a NC library, so I purchased the book because the author is from NC.

I love stories like this, where a book succeeds purely because it's well-written and people love it enough to work for it. I'll have to check this novel out. Thanks!


What a great story! I've added this book to my TBR list.


I have to add this to my pile. I have never heard of it but it must be wonderful if it spread like that just from work of mouth.


This book sounds wonderful. I've never heard of it but I've added to my list. Thanks for the post about it.

How awesome! I live like 45 min. from Raleigh N.C. I had not even heard of this so glad you put it on your site for us to know about it!

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
