From Publishers Weekly A passive protagonist and a bloodless story line make this third novel by Inman (Old Dogs and Children) a sluggish affair. Trout Moseley turns 16 in 1979, just as his mother heads for a mental institution and his father, a preacher, starts wrestling with his beliefs. Father and son retreat to the small Georgia hometown founded, named after and still dominated by their clan. There, Trout discovers a heavy ancestral burden and feels the need to right his family's past wrongs: "He could see that he was a product of a great aching history.... People with mills and trucks and money and power over other people's lives." Unfortunately, he does little besides rehash and bemoan his situation. The family's prominence?"When a Moseley farts, everybody smells it"?isn't convincingly established, and Trout's inherited moral responsibility for a town, even a failing one, doesn't come across as a compelling challenge. Inman's talent for natural dialogue and astute local coloring remains intact here, but it would have been put to better use in a story with a clearer, more dramatic conflict. Author tour.

Charlotte Mary Yonge's Victorian bestseller is a domestic story, a novel of female education, and a detailed survey of the controversies and practices of High Church Anglicanism in the 19th century. Its portrayal of the bookish, awkward heroine, Ethel May, paved the way for stories of literary heroines like Jo March and Anne Shirley, and its emphasis on the domestic life of the May family illuminates the Victorian doctrine of separate spheres, the seemingly contradictory gender politics of the Woman Question, and the relationship between religion and the rights of women in the 19th century.

Meanwhile, Rachel is hurt--did Davina stop being Jewish when she became a Messianic believer? The girls hope to discover the truth for themselves, but what will that mean for their families?"I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

In Fannie Flagg's high-spirited first novel, we meet Daisy Fay Harper in the spring of 1952, where she's not doing much except sitting around waiting for the sixth grade. When she leaves Shell Beach, Mississippi, in September 1959, she is packed up and ready for the Miss America Pageant, vowing "I won't come back until I'm somebody." But in our hearts she already is. Sassy and irreverent from the get-go, Daisy Fay takes us on a rollicking journey through her formative years on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. There, at The End of the Road of the South, the family malt shop freezer holds unspeakable things, society maven Mrs. Dot hosts Junior Debutante meetings and shares inspired thoughts for the week (such as "sincerity is as valuable as radium"), and Daisy Fay's Daddy hatches a quick-cash scheme that involves resurrecting his daughter from the dead in a carefully orchestrated miracle. Along the way, Daisy Fay does a lot of growing up, emerging as one of the most hilarious, appealing, and prized characters in modern fiction.
