More About This Book

Overview

A young man from the steel-mill and coal country of western Pennsylvania accepts his first job to teach high-school English in a small northwestern Virginia county, home of the famous Luray Caverns. During his first four months, Tom finds a place to live-a motel cabin-owned by Becky, a widow with two daughters: Ronnie, a high-school senior, and Sandi, the older daughter. He develops friendships with a handful of teachers who become the Lunch Bunch as he is learning and refining his skills as a teacher. Tom slowly becomes enmeshed in a developing mystery surrounding his assigned teacher-mentor. Tom also finds himself falling deeply in love. Set among the beautiful mountains of the Blue Ridge, where seemingly endless summer is replaced by spectacular autumn colors, where friendly and easy-going Southerners make great food and sell homey antiques, LURAY is a story that takes the reader into the classroom of a first-year teacher and into his life. In addition, the food is good and the environment is stunningly beautiful.

    Great Read!

    My sister read this author's second novel and then loaned it to me. I thought 'BLUE RIDGE HIGH' was really good--well, better than good, but I wish I'd read this one first. Both are really part of the same story although the sequel had more plot twists, I thought. What I really liked about both novels, though, was the realistic way the characters act and talk, and the really good description. I know that some readers will probably skip some of the description (like my brother Sam, who skipped eighty percent of THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE because he doesn't like detailed description) but the description is what helps make this novel (and the sequel) so real. All in all, this and the other novel are really great, slice-of-life novels, and real page turners! I could read anything by this author.

    LURAY Rocks!

    My local newspaper ran an article about this novel and the author so I figured 'Why not pick up a copy and see what made it worth getting an article written about it?' It was the best money I've spent on a novel in the last two years. This novel kept me turning one page after another until it was, unfortunately, over. The author has a real feel for people: his characters are authentic and his writing of dialogue makes you feel as if you're eavesdropping on Tom and Sandi, among others. The plots all intertwine but never get caught up in knots. I'm not sure whether I liked the school parts or the love story the most. This is a great read for all kinds of readers. I've already ordered the sequel! Way to go, Ed.

    Mystery, Mountains, Mojo!

    LURAY by Ed Buhrer is a heart-warming, fast-moving story of Tom Finn¿s first experiences with a teaching job, love, and missing persons. Tom relishes his new life in Luray, Virginia, especially the beauty of the mountains and the people he meets. Sandi, Tom¿s love interest, is a complicated character who slowly reveals herself (in more ways than one!). I enjoyed getting to know all the humorous, sweet, and strange characters in Luray through the creative description and realistic dialogue. The romance between Tom and Sandi is a pleasure to read and the mystery of what¿s happening at Mountain Valley High School increases the excitement. If you are into well-written characters, mysteries, mountains, or pepperoni and garlic pizza, this is a great read. (Also, if you like Nicholas Sparks but would prefer something edgier, LURAY would be an excellent choice.)
