I live in Baton Rouge and visit St. Francisville often. I particularly love Star Hill because of its scenic rural beauty, and I ride my bike and go for walks there often. So, I was excited to read this book (especially given the great reviews it received). I have to say I was very disappointed. It felt more like a college essay rather than a professional novel. I'm really puzzled as to why it received so much fanfare. Furthermore, I am left with a sour feeling that the author is lying [to] himself by trying to rationalize why his sister plainly did not like him.
Lmc doesn't say, but appears to think it is clear why Saint Ruthie didn't like her big bro.
Oy, talk amongst yourselves. I'm too verklempt at the moment to say anymore....
