AuthorCharlaine Harris has been a published novelist for over twenty-five years. A native of the Mississippi Delta, she grew up in the middle of a cotton field. Now she lives in southern Arkansas with her husband, her three children, three dogs, and a duck. The duck stays outside.ReviewPoor Sookie. In this book she is really getting it. I feel sorry. Am happy to see though she is holding herself up and fighting back though it hurts her body and her concious. The book is not brilliantly written or high literature but they are entertaining and a good in between read.
