About the Author
Teddy Jones lives and writes in rural West Texas. No single incident or specific person prompted the story of Halfwide, but rather the accumulation of experiences and observation, much of it gained in her years as a nurse and nurse practitioner. In those roles she observed many people in the midst of health care crises and marveled at the ways in which they cope. Often the greatest help to anyone in crisis is someone who listens. And in general, the resilience of people, many of whom are very similar to Dorothy Faye and Harold, reminds her how important continuing growth is to one’s health and well being. Plus, the attitudes and speech patterns of West Texans, which she finds oddly enchanting, challenged her to capture in Halfwide’s characters some of the qualities that make those Texans interesting. She enjoys populating her fiction with strong women whose humor and determination sustain them.

The main character is presented as a wonderful selfless soul on a voyage of discovery, but at the end she is still the good little subservient wife whose husband handles all the major life decisions and all the things that might be too much for her pretty little head.
I thought the author was trying just a bit too hard with the tie-in to crosswords.
This story was just a little too cutesy for my tastes--so not my cup of tea.
I slogged my way through this, but won't come back for any other works by this author.
their views on life and its daily struggles. As Dorothy is faced with
rediscovering herself, we gain insight into our own joys and fears of
our relationships with plain down-to-earth real people. I enjoyed getting
to know these characters and their journey and I hated for the story to end.
How wonderful it would be to get to explore ourselves in this real way.
Really enjoyed the story and the locale.
