by Gil Adamson
What can I say? I'm in love with Adamson's writing. It is poetry (no surprise, since this is Adamson's first novel following two published volumes of poetry and a collection of short stories). Somehow, this book felt like a contemporary Jane Eyre. If you like this treasure, try Catherwood by Marley Youmans. Summary: A young woman flees through the wilderness dressed in a widow's black garb. In pursuit are two huge, red-headed men and her brothers-in-law. Her crime? Murdering her husband. She is haunted by specters of her past and becomes entangled with a variety of memorable characters.
