"Bayou Renaissance Man: A new book from a great friend"

LB Johnson, author of The Book of Barkley, has written a new book It's Small Town Roads, and - to quote Amazon's description,
"Small Town Roads, the latest novel by award-winning L.B. Johnson, accurately depicts the feeling of small town life, where neighbors know each others' names and become friends for a lifetime."

"Evelyn Ahlgren, a widow, and retired schoolteacher enjoys the comforts of her little home and her surrounding neighborhood. That's why she is intrigued to see what her new neighbor, a young woman named Rachel Raines, will add to their small town.

"Rachel has just left the city with a Criminal Justice degree. She had thought she wanted a carefree city life, not a job as a rookie cop in a town whose only restaurant has a life-sized plastic cow on the roof.

"Sometimes God has other plans for us."

But this not your parents' Our Town. I was trying to figure out how to say enough complimentary things about it, but Peter (below) has done a very thorough job of covering the topic. I highly recommend the book, by the way: it's a remarkable story.

Yep, she's got a great one!

I vote yes just based on the title.

NFO - yes, she did very well indeed!

TB - it's uncomfortably close to the small town where I attended high school. At the time, I couldn't wait to get away.

L.B. could write about the weather and make it seem wonderful!
We wish her continued success - it couldn't happen to a nicer woman!
I am proud to call her a friend!

Guffaw, I agree with everything you wrote. :)
