It’s a romance, it’s funny, it’s sexy, it’s about family and kinship, mothers and daughters, homecomings and never leaving home at all. It’s got villains and magic and even a tornado, along with characters who go through unexpected trans-formations (some quite literal). It’s a page-turner. Raedawn Somershoe lives in a trailer on the banks of the Fox River. She likes men and men like her. It runs in the family: her mother can seduce a man just by walking across a road. When they set their sights on a man, something magical happens. Alexander Caebeau drives a bucketloader for a construction company. He’s lonely, homesick, tired of cutting down trees and putting up ugly buildings. He’d like to go back to the Bahamas, but his grandmother won’t let him come home and when Alexander meets Raedawn Somershoe, something magical happens.

That's lofty praise, may have to put this higher up on my read pile, as I feel Angela Carter may be (also in consideration Leguin, and Willis) the finest female writers of the fantastic I have read I'd put Carter and Le Guin up there'd be interesting to think about which was more radi...

The Fox River bank explodes into life, is rarefied by magic (the birds nesting in the tree that is no longer there, the Somershoe women walking through hillsides) and is animated by the spirit of magical realism.
