“A poignant, truth-telling collection about what it means to grow up female in the rural Midwest where gender elevates or dooms a person. Readers will cheer for these ingenious women who survive hard lessons and exact revenge with a glee and courage that makes them irresistible!”—Jonis Agee
These women “challenge a parent’s cold-heartedness, revenge themselves on hypocritical neighbors, announce prison records, infiltrate the Knights of Columbus. They are so much fun to read,” Lisa Sandlin writes, “because they refuse to back down—and stand ready to accept the consequences.”
“We care about her beloved, vanishing characters in small towns and on nearby farms.”—Josip Novakovich.
