Sarah Bird authors brilliant, captivating novels such as The Yokota Officer’s Club. Virgin of the Rodeo takes listeners on a riotous journey across the wide open spaces of Texas with a truly unique character named Sonja Getz. Sonja is seen as a curiosity in the minuscule Texas town of Dorfburg. Twenty-nine-years-old, and big-boned, she is purported to be the daughter of a famous Native American trick-roper. Her mother, Tinka, a transplanted German who despises Americans, has never understood book-crazed, dark-skinned Sonja. Now that her mother is marrying a fang-toothed linoleum salesman, Sonja may finally get the chance to move out of the stifling burg and begin a search for the father she has never known. With an unforgettable cast of characters, Bird’s enjoyable novel never fails to intrigue. Cynthia Darlow’s animated narration perfectly suits Bird’s richly descriptive prose.

    " This is a book I wish I hadn't read so I could read it and enjoy it the way I did the first time. "

    " This book was a little funny, but not very engaging. An a-typical story of a girl looking for her father, but I couldn't relate to it, even though I live in Texas. "
