Author Constance Fenimore Woolson excelled in collecting and conveying the kind of small, seemingly trivial details about people and places that, taken together, create rich, multifaceted reading experiences. In the novel East Angels, an often fraught friendship between two women unfurls against the backdrop of a Spanish colonial town on the coast of Florida. Woolson describes both the unraveling of the tense relationship and the unique culture of Florida with unparalleled realism and precision.
