    A diamong in the rough

    If you like Lee Lynch's "Sweet Creek" you'll eventually warm to these characters. There isn' t the large community of diverse characters, but there is a unique perspective that is shared and that i've never come across. I trusted the author not to take me down the wrong road and that kept me turning each page. I learned about the political struggles of a state where residents found themselves in the middle of a fight to preserve our way of life. Much of what happened in Wisconsin in 2011 is happening today in North Carolina.

    I deducted for the use of profanity and sexually explicit descriptions and situations.
