I'm talking about Susan Straight. I'm moving through her book (work of art, really) Take One Candle Light a Room right now. I'm in the last part and the whole story is coming together. It's really amazing how she brings so many different stories--the characters's past-present-future--together and how they're about to all crash into a virtual storm, while a literal storm is also bearing down on them.
I can't recommend highly enough this work of art. If you love books of any kind, you will love this. There is something here for everyone--romance, death, mystery, murder, social commentary, travel, art, racial conflict, coming-of-age.
Have any of you ready work by Susan Straight? What did you think?
Here are a few links for the author/professor:
