A thoroughly enjoyable sequal toWorthy's Town...Rolens is a subtle narrator...A balanced and evocative saga of everyday American life after the war.
Take[s] readers well beyond their usual comfort zones...Something within expands when you read about them [the characters].
— Susan Salter Reynolds; Los Angeles Times
Many readers...will immerse themselves in this community of quirky and perverse characters.
— Library Journal
As warm and enjoyable as its predecessor, Rolens' second novel is a pitch-perfect depiction of small-town life.
— Kristine Huntley; Booklist, (American Library Association)
Rolens' recreation of rural postwar America is honest and warm.
— Publishers Weekly
#5 Regional Best seller
— Denver Post/Rocky Mountain News
The author is resourceful enough to entertain her readers with a well-built window on a vanishing world...The graceful entraces and exits of her various story arcs create a pleasant rhythmic flow of local scenery, much like the well-preserved 1924 Moon Chevy that Drayton coaxes back to running form.
— Leeta Taylor; Foreword Reviews
The author...propels the plot forward, and she gracefully weaves in details that give the novel its strong sense of time and place.
— John Hinkemeyer; Rocky Mountain News, (Denver)
The depiction of rural, small town America, with its dramas and quirky characters, is an engaging story.
— Lima News, (Oh)
Rolens has matured her characters in this sequel...Once again Rolens skillfully evokes a small-town life in an earlier era...[Old Kane] is still a place to be viewed with affection...I hope Rolens revisits these characters a third time.
— Ellen Keith; Historical Novel Society
