The title story features former bandit Nora Jane Whittington who has moved to California and is now expecting twins. Nora's part-time lover, Freddy Harwood, is here too, metamorphosed into a reluctant hero in a hilarious and moving tale. Here too is Rhoda, growing up to experience teenage love in 'The Expansion of the Universe' and then motherhood in 'Adoration'. Crystal Weis grows too, in 'Traceleen at Dawn', this outrageous Southern belle quits drinking, as recounted by her devoted maid and confidante. And involved in everything from murder to dieting there is a whole cast of new Gilchrist characters for us to enjoy in this exhilarating collection." Very light browning to pages, light browning to edges of textblock, minor wrinkle at top of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, very minor rubbing. Very Good/Very Good+.
