i read this book to fulfil the goal read a celeberity book club pick. Who else but oprah right. it was ok, not great. it reminded me quite a bit of Steinbecks works. a cross between east of eden and grapes of wrath. this is the second oprah book i've read (the first being a mercy by toni morrison) i'm starting to feel you can tell a lot about a person by the sort of books they recommend. i'm beginning to think maybe i don't share oprah's ideals. i wonder what my picks say about me.

Kaye Gibbons' was first introduced to me more than 30 years ago when I purchased 'Ellen Foster' as a cassette audio for a road trip.

Then, as now, I am drawn to the characters and respect Gibbons' writing style.
If you enjoy accents, 'A Virtuous Woman' delivers!

I read Ellen Foster in the late 90's and remember loving it. I am a fan of simple stories with plump characters and this fit the bill perfectly. Definitely a quick read and perfect for a noisy airplane.
