Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
When Harvard-educated J. Monroe ``Roe'' Farley ventures into the darkest depths of the Ozark Mountains with his ediphone (a 1902 voice recording machine) to search for long-forgotten folk songs, he inadvertently finds himself becoming part of the Best household. They're an odd bunch; Jesse Best is a simpleminded, amiable giant who rescues Roe when he becomes lost and wants to know, ``Can we keep him?'' Jesse's sister Meggie immediately throws herself into Roe's arms, claiming he's her long-awaited prince, and their lame father Ornery puts more value in Roe's strong back then in his wallet. After nearly dying from Meggie's disastrous cooking, Roe settles into the slow-paced Ozark life with its patchwork quilt of lovable characters. His plans to leave the town of Marrying Stone Mountain at the end of summer are altered drastically when he accidentally ends up wedded to Meggie. But Meggie refuses to settle for anything less than true love from her dream prince. The Garrison Keillor of romance, Morsi's ( Runabout ) stories are always filled with lively narration and generous doses of humor. This latest offering is no disappointment; it's as rich and heady as a jug of mountain ``donk''--and just as hard to put down. (Aug.)

Meet the Author

National bestseller, RWA Hall of Fame member and two-time RITA winner, Pamela Morsi began writing in 1990 creating historical romance novels set in the small towns and farms of the early twentieth century. She was an immediate success garnering awards and accolades from reviewers, readers and peers. In 2000, with a new millennium, she decided to move in the direction of mainstream fiction. Her recent works depict the voices of ordinary people overcoming everyday challenges. Librarian Pamela Morsi once asked herself what she would do if she ever won the lottery. She decided, given the chance, that she would spend her time writing fiction. Now, years later, she is still waiting to win the lottery while working on her 27th novel. Pam lives in San Antonio, Texas, with her husband and daughter.

    Great Read!

    Pamela Morsi takes you to thr Ozark Mts Arkansas & teaches you the songs & way of life of the hill people through the eyes & notes of a scholarly New Englander who falls hopelessly in love with a barefoot mountain girl. I bow respectfully to the absorbing writing of Pamela Morsi. Her introduction of Simple Jess makes me eager to read his story next.
