Richard Fifield is one of my favorite reads this year. It's different from the books I normally read (cozy mysteries) and does have bad language in it, but he has set his story in what most of us imagine a poor town trailer park and its residents to be.
The Flood Girls is a softball team. Most of them live in a trailer park in the town of Quinn (population 956), Montana. The main hangout of the locals is Laverna's The Dirty Shame bar. Laverna's daughter returns to Quinn after leaving a wake of chaos behind her, her father has died and she befriends a 12 year old boy who loves sewing and sequins. Throw in the volunteer firemen, a few alcoholics, a group of husky women silver miners, and a new church where the women all wear home made blouses of the same Simplicity pattern along with long jean skirts and the story is off to a flying start.
