My dear internet, Dorraine, wrote this, it is set in Texas, one of my favorite states and the main character, Marnie Evans is a girl after my own heart. I had an Aunt Marnie who passed away some years ago so the name was already special.
Marnie is a head strong, street smart, nature loving girl. One of my favorite passages is…
“I didn’t cry, even when a tree limb whacked me square in the eye. Knuckle popping queens are tough.” See ya gotta love her, she is a Queen sorta like moi.
How can anyone not love a girl like this? No you really don’t need to answer, cause I know if you read the book you too would love her.
And here is another line, only this one made tears fall hot and heavy…
“I cleared dirt from her airway, the smell of soap and dreams still clinging to her river soaked skin.”
I suggest you read the book to find out whom this passage is referring and who said it. Now truthfully it did make me a bit angry with Dorriane, I mean how could she? But I forgave her, before I finished the chapter.
Fair warning this loving story is told from multiple view points, those of the three main characters. Unlike in the Time Travelers Wife book, the chapter headings don’t mention who is doing the speaking for that section. Oh, but my dear internets please don’t let this deter you from reading it. This story is about unconditional love and forgiveness at its best. Ranger Rick is, oh so much better than Edward or Jacob could ever hope to be as full fledged adult men!
Drop by and say hi to Dorriane and her book is available from Amazon.
So hows about you, read anything lately? Recipes, comics, instructions, books…
