Heavy Feather Review of A Tree Born Crooked

Today I'm thrilled to have a killer review up at Heavy Feather Review. Here's an excerpt to give you an idea of what Sam Slaughter thinks of A Tree Born Crooked:

"Each of the people she brings to life on her pages doesn't so much perpetuate the stereotype of a Florida Cracker as it does bring to life the people you meet at the gas station on the side of a two-lane highway. The skill with which she does this allows the novel to slide along with all the grace of an alligator in water."
