Jewelweed; David Rhodes

Different groups of people, families and stories come together in a small midwestern town.  The characters and stories are all interesting but the novel could have used a better editor as it seemed a bit verbose.  Similar to Kent Haruf novels but not as well written.  (I think I’m getting too picky as the reviews for this were outstanding everywhere)

PJH rating: ***1/2 (love the cover though)
