    A book that keeps you rapt in the story

    Ms. Sidon is one of my favorite writers and she has not let me down with Fox's Earth. The story makes you wonder what is going to happen next and hard to believe that some people are so evil to their family. Greed and the need to dominate always amaze me. This book keeps you on edge.

    My first Siddons novel

    I really struggled with this book because of how bad Ruth was and how stupid her daughters were. And I was annoyed with Rip and wanted her to just OUT how awful Ruth was. BUT, I ended up really liking it and looking for other Siddons books. I love stories of the South.

    Very Interesting Read...

    The main character of this book, Ruth Fox, scared the bejesus out of me! I liked the story and the way that it was woven as a tale that took place over several years, but that woman was a formidable character, no doubt about it. It was hard for me to reconcile the fact that the other women in the story, Ruth's daughters and granddaughters, were blind and gullible enough to not believe that Ruth was capable of true evil- Nell was the one who annoyed me the most, with her too-accomodating nature and guilt trips that nearly destroyed her. All in all, I enjoyed that story, but at the same time I was sighing over the fact that it was yet another novel written about how backward and evil the South is- that topic is beginning to bore me a bit.

    Her Best Work Yet

    Loved this story. I think it is her best work yet. The characters are vividly portrayed with all the southern charm that is so Siddons talents. I was sorry when I came to the end as I wanted to just continue on with more of Nell, Yancey and certainly Rip's future.....Thank you Ms. Siddons for a perfectly delightful novel.

    An Exquisite Evil

    Such is the power of Siddons' writing that for me, Ruth Fox could never be just fiction. I felt her eyes - 'as blue as polar seas' - while traveling through the pages of her manipulations and murderous obsession. A complete sociopath, Ruth let nothing and no-one stand in her way as she neatly despatched any actual or potential threat to achieving her 'destiny'. Except Rip... a valiant if inadequate adversary in every battle, she was ultimately victorious in the war. I have mentally cast and recast the perfect actors to play these characters in a film or mini-series of the novel, including Nicole Kidman ably portraying the toxic beauty of Ruth. Any producer who snapped up the movie rights to this novel would be on to a winner!
