In this remarkable debut work from author Karen Stolz, readers follow the arc of a girl's life as she grows to womanhood. From crushes to surprise baby sisters to nail polish to a devastating death, Roxanne is our guide through a life that has moments of tenderness, poignancy, sorrow, and great humor, as well as some wonderful baking memories. A sumptuous novel -- though like the best pie, tart in all the right places.
(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:24:27 -0400)
In a small town in Texas in the 1960s, young Roxanne journeys toward adulthood as she copes with a pie-baking contest that becomes a lesson in racial politics, a crush on the new female postal worker, and the death of her father and her mother's remarriage.
