I was very skeptical about this book at first, but for $5 how could I go wrong. Immediately I was sucked into the world of Francis Pinkham and felt a very emotional tie to the young man living under a clouded reputation thanks to his sisters who all contributed to the soiling of the Pinkham last name. Francis is faced with challenge after challenge that make him into a man of compassion whether it's just getting up in the morning knowing he lives under the shadow of Robert Cutler (The perfect picture American boy or battling life out among his sisters (who all have boys names). This book had me hooked from the 'get go' and I am so happy I judged this book by its cover.

Cedar Hole is that spot, one stop beyond the end of the line, that the natives leave and forget. If they can find transportation. Author Doyon writes with insight and wit of the lives of its greatest and worst inhabitants. I am constantly looking for new authors of contemporary fiction and have a passion for beautiful prose. Doyon delivers with high marks. Her descriptions make you laugh and cry -- you won't want to give these characters up. Definitely movie material! Take a detour to Cedar Hole and you'll get hooked! . One of my favorite books of 2005!
