“Marsha’s use of imagery is a treat. For instance: ‘she had slipped from his grasp like quick-silver chased across a tabletop.’ Those of us who grew up before knowledge of mercury poisoning know how hard it is to pick up a dollop of quicksilver.

Here’s another: ‘Only much later did sleep lay a quilt of blackness over his exhausted body.’ And one last one: ‘with the November sun pouting on the breast of a hazy sky.’ Don’t you love it?”

Liz Adair, author of Trouble at the Red Pueblo

“If you want accurate time and place, wonderful lexicon of the time, and a touching, compelling read, don’t miss SPINSTER’S FOLLY.”
