Ms. Mahurin has captured the heart of small town pettiness run amok. Mildred and Edra become the butt of gossip and maliciousness with no escape, even though many of the people doing the gossiping have unhesitatingly accepted many favors from Mildred, the wealthiest woman in the town of fictional town of Red River Pass, NV. While this book makes the reader angry, it serves as a reminder that even unthinking, seemingly light gossip can have evil effects on an entire community as well as on the victim towards whom the gossip is directed.
Ms. Mahurin has demonstrated her thorough knowledge of people and their behavior, and I hope she’s awakened a hate for gossip in all of us.
This is Ms. Mahurin’s debut novel, and I was so entranced that I couldn’t put it down. I’m eagerly awaiting the next novel from this author.
