"Prairie Reunion" (Barbara J. Scot) engaged the attentions of Club Desvelado. This book is vivid, not to mention extremely candid. Rural household and farm life and the institution of the Presbyterian church are brought to life, with many parts good for reading aloud. I love it that the author chose her new last name on the occasion of not being able to use her own and get a telephone installed, since it was back in the days when a spouse's bad debts affected the entire family, with no individual credit record for a married woman.
