Read full description of the books: Todd

Very well written piece of Southern Lit. The author's prose reminds me very much of Clyde Edgerton, espcailly some of the humorous moments between such a close knit family and community that helped make the book lighthearted when it was needed. That being said, it is not a full fledged comedy, this is not Edgerton's Raney where the jokes are plentiful, there are a good amount to be had but they are needed for the comic relief amongst a serious family drama that unfolds. The topics of child abuse and past transgrations of various characters, such as the war vet who has returned home the black sheep of the family to everyone except his nephew Todd. The story is told through Todd's eyes, a young earnest boy reminiscent of characters from Lucy Maud Montgomery's Avonlea narratives. These topics are handled tastefully and carefully enough that it is a book that a younger reader could enjoy without a parent worrying about what they will encounter in between the pages. But it is not to be considered a children's book simply because of that fact, the topics and events that Todd's family deal with are heavy at times. The author has simply written a novel that could be enjoyed by someone who is 15 and likewise someone who is 65. If you are looking for an interesting narrative with a bit of southern charm, the heart warming closeness of Montgomery's community on Prince Edward Island and just a sprinkle of Law & Order this is not a book to miss out on.
