Cranston, Texas will never be the same without Joe and Doris.
October 19, 2014
I enjoyed this story a great deal though it was a bit slower read than I like, I have to admit. But the characters were vivid, real, small town America, wouldn't make any difference in what state it was set. The return of Joe's son was sad and the response was not only unexpected but it was hilarious and at the same time a little offensive considering the good wishes of the town to Joe and his son. But I think I understood. So it was all good. I loved Doris. She will sit in my memory for a long time as a great character and I am glad she struck out to see what she could in the time she had left. A good read. Well done.
