Complex and daring.... One of those books that readers wish had a sequel. -Jane Smiley on Jetta Carleton's The Moonflower Vine

The time: 1941, at the cusp of America's entry into World War II. The place: southwest Missouri, on the edge of the Ozark Mountains. A young single woman named Allen Liles has taken a job as a junior college teacher in a small town, although she dreams of living in New York City, of dancing at recitals, of absorbing the bohemian delights of the Village. Then she encounters two young men: George, a lanky, carefree spirit, and Toby, a dark-haired, searching soul with a wary look in his eyes. Soon the three strike up an after-school friendship, bantering and debating over letters, ethics, and philosophy - innocently at first, but soon in giddy flirtation - until Allen and one of the young men push things too far, and the quiet happiness she has struggled so hard to discover is thrown into jeopardy.

    " Another rediscovered work from the author of the Moonflower Vine, and a Missouri native. "

    " I felt this book was a good read. It was rather light, easy to follow, and subject matter not too deep. Fun reading a young woman's ambivalent move from irresponsible childhood, to the maturity of a junior college teacher in a small town in southwest Missouri. She did have some rough spots and also had the "usual small town "witch" who felt her job was to monitor all young women in the community for any "errows of her way" Much to Anna's benefit, Anna did have a dear old,retiring professor who in his kind, compassionate way, helped Anna to recognized the recklessness of some of her behaviors. He was also responsible for protecting her against the usual gossip, and make it possible for Anna to continue her job. This was very important during the times of the War in the 1940's.i "

    " Lovely book, a coming of age story--or maybe coming to wisdom is a better phrase--that's a little different from the typical. Somewhat sweeter than The Moonflower Vine, the only other book I know by Carleton--and that's not necessarily better. In fact, I liked Moonflower Vine more. But the writing is very good; I don't understand why this author is relatively unknown. "

    " The last half was utterly impossible to get through. It's never taken me this long to get through a book, especially considering all the time that I made in which to read it. This book should have just remained undiscovered. "
