East Angels

by Constance Fenimore Woolson

Set in Gracias a Dios, a little town lying half asleep on the southern coast of the United States under a sky of almost changeless blue. The heroine, Edgarda Thorne, the child of a New England mother but with Spanish blood in her veins who has lived all her life in the South, is just ripening into womanhood when the story opens. The plot is concerned chiefly with her love affairs, men of totally different types being thus brought into juxtaposition. Like the author's other novels, "East Angels" lacks the romantic and ideal elements, but it is strong in the delineation of everyday character and incident. It is superfluous to say that the workmanship is excellent and the interest well sustained.

Author of the Day

J.J. White
Apart from being able to surf (the ocean, not the web) and singing and whistling at the same time, J.J. White is an amazing writer who knows how to draw his readers in and keep them at the edge of their seats. His latest book, Deviant Acts, is no exception and deals with a ex-soldier/heroin addict who finds himself in a situation where he needs to play the hero. As our author of the day, White reveals how relatives of his inspired this book and why his friends call his wife "Saint Pam."
