Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
Good book about Violet, a misfit teenage girl during the 1930s who hooks up with a trio of musicians. Brothers Austin and Dallas and Nodak farmboy-hunk Kjel are a sensation in small clubs and roadhouses in the midwest and south. All that happens to them on the road and the years after are vintage Landvik. Bad stuff happens but some pretty good stuff also. To anticipate the bad and fear it, interferes with enjoyment of the good. Love life, it’s short but glorious.
