So first of all: I read Grayson Springs with interest, with a lot of interest, interest in Brook, but also in the other persons (and of course: in Ron). And I admired your skillful and crafty development of the young woman, her changing perspectives, her faltering steps towards her sexual identity, the gradually emerging friendship with Sherri (who makes a perfect contrast) and and and. The story is credible and had enough pull to keep me going, even though your wide-ranging vocabulary (and the partly vernacular language) were quite demanding for me as a foreign reader. And I must say: I admire your art of dialogue. I think it is fabulous and leaves the impression of a well established writer. So what shall I say more: Oh yes, there were some spots when I thought: That treasure thing is getting a bit lengthy. But I had hardly thought it when some other aspect grasped my attention and off it was.
To say “You've got a great writing talent” would be an understatement. You are a deft writer and having read Grayson Springs I feel honored through knowing you – and just the more am grateful for all the good you've given to Christiane. Is the book going to be translated into German? It would be a worthwhile but not easy task.
Thank you! Bobby (Wuerzburg, Germany)
Brooke is a troubled teen, and she is headed down a path that is not ideal. Her concerned father finds Grayson Springs as an alternative to juvenile detention and signs Brooke up. From there, Brooke is on a whirlwind of learning about rural life, 1800s technology, and her own past.
Interwoven throughout the novel is a second storyline of another young woman who worked at the inn--and who is mysteriously connected to Brooke.
I would particularly recommend this book for those who are interested in history or genealogy. It is a novel that is driven by character development and the (sometimes unlikely) relationships between characters. The reader finds him- or herself rooting for Brooke as she sorts her way through Grayson Springs life and layers of history.
