An incredible writer, definitely one of my "re-read books". This man is a genius. ( )

I really enjoyed this novel by Tim Gautreaux. The characters are very well developed, and the sense of family and home is very powerful. I enjoyed Gautreaux's writing style and he draws out strong emotions as he tells the story of Paul and Collette. I've read several of the author's books, and will buy the remaining ones as well. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312199368, Paperback)

Bringing the same light and gentle understanding that he did to the story collection Same Place, Same Things, author Tim Gautreaux tells the tale of Paul and Colette, star-crossed and factious lovers struggling to make it in rural south Louisiana. When Colette, fed up with small town life, perceives yet another indiscretion by the fun-loving Paul, she heads for Los Angeles, with big dreams and Paul in tow. Paul's attempts to draw his beautiful young wife back home to the Cajun bayou, and back to his heart, make up a tale filled with warmth, devotion and majestically constructed scenes of Southern life.
