This book is The Milagro Beanfield War as Samari. It reached down my throat, grabbed my guts, and yanked. Only someone who has been so grabbed by northern New Mexico can read and be left wanting desperately to return there even if they've never been before. How can people love this place that is so hard? So poor? So old? I don't know. I don't why I love it: a white, suburban reared, middle class, middle aged woman. But it's the part of the country my soul loves. And I loved this book in the same [...]

One of the best books I have read in a long time. Filled with so much happiness yet so much sadness as well. I loved the characters and their connections with one another.

Arroyo, cuenta una historia hermosa sublime. La idea la Sra. Wood tiene en la humanidad es profunda, sus personajes son creíbles; la atención al detalle es exraordinary, y el humor que impregna esta historia es mágico. Es una sorprendente combinación de la escritura bella, personajes complejos y una línea de historia interesante - también una rara joya en que se trata de un romance lésbico que califica como la verdadera literatura. Hágase un favor y disfrute de este libro. Es probable qu [...]

Oddly written fragmentated. Sentences come in spurts Thoughts and imagery fade in .fade out. I enjoyed this book. However I tend to like to dive into the characters more, to know them deeply. To have a story unfold around them. I dog eared the family tree page and referred back to it often just so I could follow who was who, I’ve never encountered such vagueness. This whole novel - every page leaves you wondering where you’re going. I suppose that in itself is a talent. I liked it - didn’ [...]

Not as much lesbian action as I'd hoped, but a better book than I'd imagined otherwise. Very lyrical storytelling style, and a blend of english and spanish reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy's "All the Pretty Horses" which I liked (even though I don't speak spanish). I guessed at how it would end, but that didn't make it disappointing.Plus, I just love the word "Arroyo." :)

There's a lot of hard luck in here, but the book is by no means hard to read. Jagged, yet it's soothing in a way. The settings and characters are certainly vivid. It manages to be very visceral for such an emotionally appealing book.

Had to return it, it was okay, but not great enough for me to keep it overdue.

I loved this book and the way Summer Wood brings her characters (including the setting) to life. Skillfully written, with a fresh, new voice.

Lesbians but not as great as you'd think it would be.

Well written, and it is the writing style that one would come for: immediate, impressionistic, sense-driven.

Line by line, this was a beautifully written book with powerful images and language, but as a whole the story never really brought out an emotional reaction in me as a reader.
