I loved this book; what a great surprise!
My visit to Clayton, Iowa felt like I fell down the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland. The people in this small town are absolutely hilarious. I haven’t had this much fun since I read Cannery Row. The town is chock-filled with characters that seem unreal when you first meet them. I’m sure that is how IRS Agent, Sarah Hunter, felt upon her arrival in the wacky town of Clayton. I also learned about the Bartering Law, which was passed in 1982, by our wonderful government (not!). ‘’
This is a series (like that is a big surprise in publishing nowadays) about small town life… which I like to read. It all makes me wonder, “Where did it all go wrong here in our country?” Well, I’m off to return to the wacky, heart-warming, loving town of Clayton, Iowa in Book#2.
New Beginnings: Book 2 The Secrets of Clayton County
The further adventures of the people of Clayton County, Iowa. I like how everyone is growing up; the struggles children go through to become “good adults.” I also like the new characters! Too bad Book #3 isn’t coming out until 2014!
