A Cure for Dreams: A Novel
Like her first two award-winning novels (Ellen Foster and A Virtuous Woman), A Cure for Dreams is set in the rural and small-town South and draws richly upon the author's ear for comic turns of phrase and her sure grasp of the humor, pathos, and dignity of supposedly "ordinary" people. The determination of the women of the story to assert themselves in confining, dependent situations makes for uplifting, enjoyable reading.

Once I'd read [Ellen Foster] I couldn't' get enough of Kaye Gibbons, and devoured all the books by her I could find. This one is set in the small towns of Virginia and Kentucky and celebrates strong women who survive within their rural communities. Read full review

I have loved most of Ms. Gibbons' books, but could not read past the first few chapters of this one. Maybe I was just too set on a feel-good book for the weekend. Read full review
