The Wiregrass, Praise

“5 Stars! This novel blew me away. This is why we should ration five star ratings: so when we give them they mean something.

“For this reviewer, The Wiregrass was reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird, Tom Sawyer, and Of Mice and Men yet, all the while, it was its very own unique story written with a large measure of tenderness and grace. What a privilege to have the opportunity to read this Advance Reader Copy of a book that is surely destined to become a best seller!”

“A Perfect 10 doesn’t happen easily, but THE WIREGRASS grabbed my interest from the beginning. Beautifully written, the story is enhanced by lovely sketches within the pages of various places in Crystal Springs. The characters are lovingly presented, from the lively cussins, to the hauntingly sad Mitchell. There are few books I can look back on that brought tears to my eyes, and this is one of them. I enjoyed THE WIREGRASS immensely and highly recommend it.”

“There are deep southern traditions at work here, of memory, courage, sweetness and sadness. This is a brave book at the same time it’s complex and gentle, and the way it honors a sense of time and place is truly remarkable.”
David L. Robbins, NY Times bestselling author of Scorched Earth and The Empty Quarter

“Drawing on themes reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird, this novel tells the story of a young woman forced to confront the evil hidden in the Southern community she loves. With empathy and care, Webber brings to life the hidden world of the Wiregrass in the 1960s. This is a coming-of-age story that will move you profoundly.”
