I am always interested in stories based in New Orleans because there is a direct relationship between the French-speaking people of New Orleans and the area where I grew up in Canada. As you know, French-speaking New Orleaners are descendants of French people evicted from Nova Scotia, Canada, many years ago.

I think it's timely that this novel is set in New Orleans 60 years ago. Sadly, so much has changed but I'd love to read about this era. BTW, I love the cover!

I love reading books based on the South and New Orleans even though I live near Seattle. It just seems like life is different there and moves at a different pace than here. I think I would enjoy this book

I've read that the setting of New Orleans in the 50's is intriguing in itself. It sounds not so long ago, but things were so different. And the story line sounds interesting
