Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Badly burned in a household accident when she was a child, Finch Nobles grows into a courageous and feisty loner who eschews the pity of her hometown and discovers that she can hear the voices of the people buried in her father's cemetery. Finally, when she speaks to them, they answer, telling their stories in a remarkable chorus of regrets, expla-nations, and insights.  A Gracious Plenty is like an extraordinary amalgam of Steinbeck and Faulkner,  Spoon River Anthology and Our Town. It is a reading experience that you will not soon forget.

I read this book first when I was in high school and it remains one of the most wonderful books I have ever read. Reynolds' language moves across you languidly, with the ease I associate with Southern women. The magical realism of this book is almost secondary to the sheer thrill of the reading experience, but the magic is no less moving or vivid. I have read it a couple of times since, and it never fails to capture me.
